Finally Feeling Better (Unfiltered Post #4?)

I haven't posted in over a week because I've been feeling under the weather-with a fever that lingered on for 7 days!  I am finally feeling (mostly) better and so I am starting to catch up with all that I have been neglecting.  Clearly, my unfiltered blogging posts dropped off, but I think this will be my fourth.

Unfortunately when I wasn't feeling well, I still didn't get much reading done.  I would like to have finished more books that I have by now.  I still have most of One Hundred Years of Solitude to read, and I've started a few others.  Right now, I am also working through two workbooks on Spanish, as well as couple of additional job search related books.  Finally, I am also reading a book about online genealogy research.  And, of course, still working my way through The Artist's Way.  I am continuing to enjoy and benefit from the writing I'm doing as part of The Artist's Way program.  Morning Pages are a wonderful tool.  Does anyone else use them?  I confess that I am not on a regular schedule for them yet, and still miss some days, but I am getting to them more often than not, which is a big step in the right direction.  

This week, I will try to get back on a more regular reading and writing schedule.  I need to spend some extra time brainstorming for the book I'll write some day.  

Does anyone else have book-writing aspirations?  What progress have you made?  Any suggestions?

So glad you got over that fever!

I've been in a reading rut the last month or so. Just can't commit to a book. But I know when I do I'll plow through a bunch at once (using your blog as inspiration!).

I glanced through The Artist's Way once but wasn't enamored. I do believe there is value in journaling, as I've done it my whole life. I have writing aspirations, but not necessarily a book. Not sure what is in store for me that way, but blogging has been a great way to keep my creative mind active!

Thanks Maggie! It was great to hear from you! I think journaling is great, but you certainly don't have to follow the Artist's Way program to benefit.

I hope you find some books that grab you soon. It took me a long time to be willing to give up a book I really didn't enjoy, but now it gives me a lot of freedom. If you don't like a book-there's no need to commit! Why waste precious reading time on something you don't enjoy?
