ROW80 Update 5/18

Hi everyone!

Still behind but still trying to catch up. I have to say that I'm in a good mood today, I'm going to try and get my word count in, we'll see what happens (as always ^^;). And, yeah, the guitar and violin is distracting me cause I really want to do that all the time instead of writing. Maybe it'll wear off, cause right now it's still new. I hope it doesn't wear off completely though, cause I don't want to stop doing it.

I think I'm gonna catch up on my reading too. I haven't read anything in. . . weeks? Months? It's been awhile and I miss it, I haven't let myself read anything because I'm writing and don't want to be distracted but. . . I just can't not read anymore. It's probably hindering me more than helping.

Do you guys read, or not, while you write? And if not, why?

A really good book can definitely inspire you to write.

And a bad book can do the same thing, because you'll think you can do better. So, yeah, go do some reading. You won't regret it. :P

I don't think reading hinders my writing. I usually read about 3-5 books a week!

The best advice on writing (well, I think it is) is from Stephen King...write everyday AND read a lot!
