I love to read. I really do.
There's just one problem...
When I'm deep in writing the first draft of a book, I not only feel guilty about stopping my work to read, but I can't get into someone else's book without thinking about mine.
It's a bad situation for me. I will read another author's mystery and scratch my head wondering why they didn't do something this way or that. I critique the writing more than enjoying the story. Or I'll critique my work and feel so inadequate thinking how much better their story is than mine.
It's a vicious cycle!
Do y'all read for enjoyment? Or do you critique the writer's work as you go?
