Dear Miss Snark,
I suspect you drink gin both for business and pleasure, but I was curious if someone in your eh hem, position reads much for pleasure. I have found that since I've been writing seriously and honing my craft, that I just don't enjoy books as much anymore. I nit pick grammar, plotlines and even little petty things, thinking "If I'd written this book, I would have...".
Does this happen to you also?
I drink gin for medicinal purposes only. Any statements to the contrary are pure statistics...I mean lies, damn lies.
I read for fun all the time. There's a whole list of books I've read in 2006 on the blogroll on the right under Library Thing. Sure I nitpick and sneer at some things, but most of what I read to the finish I really liked. But..I'm not a writer. The only thing craft I'm honing is the Craftmatic Adjustable Montauk Hammock.
