I’m not even sure if it’s actually stress or a slight reading slump or what, but I’m woefully behind on October Book Releasee (there are so many of them) and it’s bumming me out. It doesn’t help that a lot of them I ended up DNFing and even more so the desire I had to read them back in January has faded.
I’m trying to push myself through them, but I’m thinking I need to take a break and just read something for fun that I don’t need to review. I think I need something low to no pressure. The idea of taking a break to read something for fun, stresses me out because I want to try and get the October Releases done in October.
So, what I actually end up doing is not reading at all because that makes total sense I know. It’s also why this post is going up versus a book review. I’m also very much into wanting to work on my WIP, but because I feel this pressure to read, I ignore it, and no shows but Grey’s is capturing my attention so basically the majority of my outlets are crumbling around me.
Also NaNoWriMo is quickly approaching and I think I know what I want to write, but I also can’t bring myself to commit to it. I gave myself a self-imposed deadline, which is this Friday, so I have time to do some prep and it’s stressing me out as well.
There are just not enough hours in a day. I need more.
On a good note, I did finish a book last night and enjoyed it and I read the first part of a friends WIP and it was amazing! She read the first five chapters of mine, and I was so nervous! No one outside of my family and friends who have known me for years had read it, but she liked it! The fact that I need to get more chapters to her is a motivation and hopefully I can jump into it tomorrow.
I think I’m going to play some Sims to get my mind off everything and start fresh tomorrow (today when you’re reading this).
