So glad to see the topic!
I feel guilty that I haven't read as much this last while. Partly, I was so burned out from rewrites and going over my new manuscript multiple times, I almost couldn't stand the written word. Before that, when I was in deep throes of writing, I didn't read much, either. I tend to avoid reading fiction while I'm doing heavy writing because I'm afraid I'll be influenced by another author's voice. That means I've slid downhill these last months, but I miss reading fiction because I truly love it.
Which is why I like the idea of 30 minutes a day, just like setting aside time for exercise. I know my soul needs it, and excellent writing from other authors does lift me up, so I'm going to start this new schedule and see what happens.
Thanks for everyone's great comments and suggestions!
