Since WesterCon I’ve been a more productive writer. Since there are only 24 hours in a day, do you know what’s taken the hit? Reading and blogging. I’ve decided to cut back on ARCs, and review when I have time. Writing *is* my day job; it has to have priority. Blogging is a fun thing that I do for me.
As for the #reReadathon, what I did read last week was rereading; it just wasn’t very much. I read “The Sand-man” by E. T. A. Hoffmann, about a third of The Last Unicorn, and half of “Maezel’s Chess Player” by Edgar Allan Poe.
What am I going to try reading this week? Eric and I have another long car trip ahead of us and I’ll be taking The Princess Bride (again) and a selection of 19th century short stories. That should keep us awake.
I did end up going to see Baby Driver last Friday. It’s very stylish. Great car chases. Great soundtrack.* Plot? Well, I’m going to choose not to think too hard about it. I am glad that it’s doing relatively well among the franchise juggernauts.
* I may or may not have listened to the soundtrack about a dozen times last week. The above clip is the opening scene of the film set to “Bellbottoms” by Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
