I have been feeling out of sorts all month. It actually started just before my vacation in June, and doesn’t seem to be going away. I’m finding it extremely difficult to write reviews, and I’ve barely been reading at all. Everything just feels all wrong.
I’ve had slumps before, both reading and review writing, but this one seems the worst ever. It seems to be a spiral as I’m not motivated to write the reviews in my backlog, and I don’t want to read and create more of a backlog. So round and round I go with no books and no reviews. Boo!
I don’t even want to compile my monthly stats because I know they’ll just show basically no books read for June or July. Which is depressing to see when written down.
The only thing I can think to do is just sit down and force myself to write the reviews for my backlog. At least then I’ll be caught up and can deal with the reading slump as a single issue, without the stress of reviewing to go along with it.
That’s what I’ll do… right after I check Facebook… and maybe play a few hours of Minecraft…. is it bedtime yet?
