There's nothing like opening the covers of a new book and preparing for the journey into the world that the writer has created. So it pains my heart to go cold turkey on reading. Yep, I've quit books - for one month. In an effort to focus all my writing energy to completing NaNoWriMo this month, I've decided that I won't pick up a new book until December 1st (or until I complete the 50,000 words needed to finish NaNoWriMo). Yikes - 1 month without my favorite characters.
It's going to be tough, but I need to do it so I won't be tempted to curl up with a book instead of curling up with my laptop.
I'll let you know when I start having withdrawals.
