Cannibalizing myself, one bite at a time.
Thanks for sharing this experience! I totally get the whole thing about feeding the beast. I've been wanting to get serious again about my own writing, BUT... I edit books all day, every day and it's hard to get into that mode outside of working hours. I do hope you get that book written and that you keep us posted about it.
I think my last pleasure reading was a Star Wars novel, “Padawan”, by Kiersten White. Though a lot of the reading I’m doing for work, or research is really enjoyable, so it doesn’t feel as tedious.
