I know this is my first update for today and we're already halfway through! I have to say I just haven't been that inspired yet to post anything. I decided to forego the hourly challenges and just focus on reading. I did okay at first. I officially started at 8:15 am and around 12:30 pm I finished my first book, Bossypants by Tina Fey. I took a few other 10-15 minute breaks here or there. Bossypants was hilarious!
But then. I've struggled since then. I started a couple different books and just couldn't get into anything. I finally settled on one that I've essentially been working on ever since. It's a short book, even, but I am trudging through. Ick. And even though I have like 20 books on a pile to choose from that I thought would work well, I'm not interested in any at the moment! So, I'm almost done with only my second book but then hope to get to something really good after that.
In the meantime, I'm tired and I have a headache. And I'm slightly sunburned but that's okay. I've taken breaks for a short nap, for dinner, and for some tv. But I'm back at it now and will hopefully finish this novel-wannabe-but-more-like-a-discussion-of-theoretical-and-philosophical-sorts book soon and read something really fun after that!
Hope all you other read-a-thon-ers are doing well!
