I am still stuck in the phase of reading a book to the finish. Sometimes it’s not so bad because the book gets better, but other time it can be so boring.
At the moment I am reading a book about two characters who fall in love. The love making scenes are particularly long, they go on and on and on, until I almost want to scream. Seriously if I was writing such a scene I would cut it down to one paragraph or even a sentence.
Anyway I bought the book, I have read one third and one day I will finish it. I wish I was more like you, I just feel so compelled to finish something I start, even though life is too short.
Good luck with you own writing by the way, it sounds like you’re really on top of it.
