The time to begin writing an article is when you have finished it to your satisfaction. By that time you begin to clearly and logically perceive what it is you really want to say.
OK I’ll admit I like a story that revolves around romance and where there is romance there should be sex. I just find when I’m reading a story where the sexual chemistry is stimulating between the characters makes it soooo much more…interesting. So sue me!
Then I was really floored when another gal there said to me “besides not everyone has the time to read like you do”. Whoa, I think I was just sucker punched...
- “I read all day at work or for school, the last thing I want is to read something else”
- “All I want to do at the end of the day is turn on the TV and stop thinking”.
Those two have to be the saddest one of all. What better way to escape or “stop thinking” then with a good novel? Reading a book shouldn’t be deemed a chore, it should be looked upon as an adventure that’s just a page away.
So is it just “those” books or recreational reading in general that they don’t have the time for? Could it be that when they say “no time” it’s meant literally? Why? What has us so busy that we can’t take a moment to relax with a good book? Are we afraid we’re going to miss something if we take the time to read? Could the latest tweet or FB post be that important we couldn’t stand to miss it? (Don’t worry I’ll be twitting about this as soon as it’s posted) Or does it have more to do with the attention required sitting and focusing on one thing only, that is the problem? I think with all the new venues we have at our finger tips today, Kindle, IPad, even our phones now have apps that will allow us to download books it would be easier now more than ever to find the time to read. So maybe it’s not so much finding time, and more to do with finding something that might be worth taking time for.
