I'm in a bad way.
I can't find anything to hold my attention. Everything I pick up to read feels familiar. I think I've read it before. And if it feels brand new, I get bored with it. I can't explain it precisely, but I just can't find something to read.
Even when I find something I enjoy and do finish, it takes me forever. I'm stuck reading a chapter at a time. Three pages here. A page there. It took me 3 weeks to finish a book that should have taken me 3 days.
I think I'm distracted. I've got a wedding coming up, short stories and a novel to work on, and it's the end of the school year. But it's disappointing. I want to read. It's a passion of mine.
Reading is what got me into writing.
And instead, I'm sitting around reloading sports message boards and watching baseball.
Though, at the same time, I've discovered BREAKING BAD. And that's a good thing.
Do you go through reading slumps? How do you get out of them?
