Look at the disapproval on Zim’s face. He knows. Even an alien invader who wants to rain some doom down upon the heads of our doomed enemies knows that a writer has to read in order to write. That stack of books hasn’t budged in a few weeks. As Zim would say, ‘Filthy human worm-baby, you are PATHETIC! I shall rule you all with an iron fist. You! Obey the fist!”
Today I think I’m calling for a day of reading. Oh I still have work to do but when I get a break I’ll crack open a book instead of chatting with hot chicks about their hot lives. It’ll be hard but I need to soak in fiction for a little while. I need to read a good book to see how a story is done and I need to read a bad book to inspire me to do a better job. I need step away from the world of Blogs and true life fictional confessions and slow my mind down for the long enjoyable ride of a 450 page story.
