She asked me to guest blog.
Not today, mind you, but back on th 29th.
And I have no excuse for flaking, I really don't. Except I was lost in a world of reading. Don't you hate it when that happens? You get lost in a book, or in my case a series of books, and you forget all time and place, wondering what happened, why you suddenly have stuff you should have been doing...
I bow my head in shame. It was a good series of books though... ;)
I apologize to Jacquelyn for messing up, and I apologize to Adrianna for popping in now, over her post.
I had considered not posting at all, since I had missed my slot. But I figured Jacquelyn was nice enough to ask me to come over, and I figured the least I could do was pop in and at least explain why I was...
Yeah, I was reading. And it wasn't Harry Potter. That was last weekend.
I tend to read most standard paperbacks in less than a day. Longer if the book doesn't grip me instantly. Of course, I rarely buy books that don't grip me, so I usually wind up reading them in one quick sitting, zooming through them at top speed, neglecting the laundry, housework, even my own writing.
When I get a bug in me, I read like a crazy person. Course, I do the same when I write. I get into a groove, and the world falls away, and everything zeroes into the story, and I can't type fast enough to get it down.
Like my book Unified Souls, a scifi romance about a cyborg named Jasmine Storm. The idea took almost ten years to enhance and perfect, but when it was done, I finished the book in approximately four months, pouring out of me at breakneck speed. And then it was reworked a couple of times to smooth out the bugs, but for the most part, what's there is what I originally wrote.
Very heady to know I wrote it that fast.
What about you, do you lose yourself in your reading or your writing?
