My Reader’s Block Is Lifted!

Saturday, August 19, 2006

I posted a few days ago about how I haven’t been able to read books in the genres I write in in years. But, hallelujah, the reader’s block is lifted.

When I got home from the MTCW monthly meeting this morning, a new book was waiting in my mailbox from Possibilities by Debra White Smith, the sixth book of her Jane Austen series where she has taken Austen’s books and rewritten them as contemporary inspirational romances.

I was determined to sit down and read one book this weekend—thinking it would be one of the stack of historical inspirationals sitting beside my bed. But when I walked in with this one, knowing it is based on my favorite of all of Austen’s novels, Persuasion, I decided to give it a go. And wham, bam! Four hours later, I had read the whole book, making only minor comments of frustration over some copy-editing mistakes.

Now that I’ve conquered that, I’m going to try to get some writing of my own done the rest of today and see if I can do a repeat-performance and read another book tomorrow afternoon!
