Maybe this is a dumb question, but what’s the reading equivalent of binge-watching? Perhaps waiting to read a series until it’s been finished? My underlying question, though, is what does it take to satiate our entertainment appetite once it’s used to intense saturation? I plowed through three separate novels this weekend and it felt pretty good. Still, I find myself itching for another binge reading session. Hmm.
In the meantime, I’ll remember that reading time isn’t antithetical to writing time. It just feels like it! But we’re Lutheran—we know our feelings can be wrong or misinterpreted. Here’s hoping I pay attention to my vocations. I shouldn’t get lost in binge reading!!
Sickness is sweeping through my family and I’m tired of the noise of television. But why do I turn to reading vs writing?!
I’m smitten with this article on The Busy Person’s Lies. I keep thinking about it. Sometimes I’m affirmed, sometimes condemned, but more often it fills me with a delightful sense of wonder: what if I’ve really got time?
I’ll admit this may be dumb. I love the blogging feature where you “schedule” rather than “publish.” It is such a weight off my mind, even though it is hardly different: I won’t really get up earlier than 6am to catch a final error before “going live.”
The comforts we cling to are so often additional steps. We add to our days rather than subtract from them, despite feeling a frightful scarcity of time.
A fellow Lutheran blogger has graciously offered us a guest post on learning to write when you don’t have time, or at least not much! Thank you, Anna Mussmann, and you are welcome to write here any time!
