Restless Mind Leads to Much Reading...

That's right. I had one of those weeks where although my head was FULL OF STORY STUFF, I couldn't focus on ONE thing. 😵

There's a lot of mind clutter for me to sift through and it's keeping me from committing to the many projects I'm excited about getting stuck into. I even posted a tweet about it:

This is always a peculiar place to be. Although I'm super excited about the new ideas, first drafts, started stories and those that are nothing more than tiny bubbles, it gets so hard to grab only one. 

I want to tackle all of them. At the same time!

It could be that my mind's still in break-mode. But my two awesome weeks with hubby ended a few weeks ago. Or it could be that I don't want to get stuck into anything until our daughter moves out (to Canada) at the end of the month.

Maybe it's just a combination of everything going on around me.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

A restless mind means that I spent most of the week going through the piles (and piles) of paperbacks I've acquired recently. Or going through the multitude of Kindle books on my Paperwhite/s. And THAT, of course, leads to getting a taste of these books... which leads to reading whatever book I start because they hook me in. LOL.

So, yeah, I did a lot of reading this week:

Not bad, huh? The coolest thing about all this reading is clearing titles off my TBR pile. Besides, I love how much reading sparks my imagination and fills me with inspiration.

Looks like I'm going to have to grab my notebook and start jotting my jumbled thoughts down. This'll hopefully help me sort through all the clutter so I can decide what project to tackle next.

We also went to watch DETECTIVE PIKACHU last night, which was SO MUCH FUN! It combined two things I enjoy--Pikachu and detective noir. The world they created in this movie was super cool. And Ryan Reynolds totally nailed the cheeky Pikachu voice. Only prob is that I now want a Pika of my own! 😂

Well, that's about it for now. May is turning out to be a big reading month, but I'm not going to complain. I don't even feel bad about it, because reading and writing are definitely connected.

Have a great weekend!
