|I'm not cool and I know it, Sean Landers|
But lately, I've been reading a whole lot of unpublished chapters critically, and my critting mindset is spilling over into my pleasure reading. This isn't always as bad as it sounds - sometimes I purposefully read a book critically, but only when it's a book I loved and I'm reading it for a second time to see how the author did something.
So now I'm thinking I might need a sort of break between critting and pleasure reading in order to really experience the book as a reader and not as a critical writer. Maybe I won't crit at all while I'm reading a book, not until it's done.
Do you have the same issue? How do you deal with it?
