I feel that it's my calling and most of the time, I love it. There's nothing more exciting than the opportunities that come with a blank page or the knowledge that you're only a couple of chapters off completing a book. I'm thriving on the latter at the moment. But there's one thing I'd do a LOT more of if I didn't write... it's probably the thing that led me to write in the first place.
You guessed it.
When I'm writing hard on a book, I barely have any time to read. Writing takes up the time that would equal relaxation/leisure time in most people's world. I don't watch tv much, because that's the time when I write. I only read a little just before bed because any free time on evenings and weekends is taken up writing.
As a result, I am so depressingly behind on my TBR pile. I think I've probably finished two novels this month and one of them I may actually have started last month. There are SO many books out there I want to read. I keep buying them even if I don't have the time to read them.
So... as I head towards the finish line on my current wip - Hollywood Heartbreak - I'm already planning a reading vacation, some time off from writing where I indulge my love of books.
Is there anything aside from reading, you miss because of writing?
