Just lounging around

Today wasn't my most productive day, although I did do my share of taxi-ing the kids around, paying bills, washing dishes and cooking dinner. I even read a little! (While waiting at ballet for my 5 year old) But what I really wanted to do was what these guys are doing!

I will next happily announce that my writing muse did come back. I plowed through a huge chunk of the revision I'm working on and have worked out more of the story in my head. All in all, I'm glad to be in the groove again. Thanks again to everyone for their inspiration during my slumpy period.

Right now I'm reading three books, one unpublished from my writing partner, one published from a friend of hers, and another that I got through a B& N deal.

They are all very good and very different. I think that's why I read a number of books at the same time- it's a little like flipping through the channels on TV, depending on what mood I'm in determines which book I'll pick up and read. I have the published ones listed on my Goodreads account, and when I'm finished I'll post a review.

What are you up to this week? Glad you stopped by :)

  1. That's one reason I read multiple books at a time, too. I'm so glad you're back in the saddle! Hope the writing continues!

  2. Glad you're inspired again!
    I can only read one book at a time. I confuse myself otherwise.

    1. Thanks!
      I try to stick with one book but it never quite works out. I'll admit it does sometimes get confusing when I have a bunch going at once, but I can't help it. I think I get bored at the slow parts, and all books have slow parts.

  3. Welcome back Writing Muse! That's great to hear. It definitely stinks when your muse is gone.
    This week? I'm working on prints & small paintings.

  4. I also took a leisurely day. The brain needs it at times to prevent mental breakdown. lol I went and saw "Sinister" at the theater and liked it. Good scary parts. caught up also on my blog as I am going to host a Halloween blog up. Just having fun for a change rather than all work. Cheers!

    1. Glad you had a relaxing day! Although I don't know how "leisurely" I would feel while watching a horror movie. I try not to watch them because I have an overactive imagination.

  11. I also read more than one book at a time. One print for daytime and another on Kindle at night!

    1. I keep print books around too- like for taking to work or reading while soaking in the tub.

  12. It's good that you kicked that writing slump. If I'm not drawn in by a book, I'll read another one alongside.

  13. That's a great way to think about books--fitting your mood to your reading.

    1. Well, I'm glad I at least SOUND organized. In reality, not so much. But I have been doing a lot of reading lately.
