Slumpin'

Reading Slumps.

The bane of a book lover's existence.

We all have them.  We all hate them.  We all feel like they will never freaking end. (omg please just let it end!)

I mean, at first, you take it with ease. You are totally chill about it.  It's just today, right?  Or maybe just this week?  



But then another week goes by. And another.  And another.


Pretty soon you are losing your mind because you can't pay attention to any words, no matter how hard you try.







And you've been trying.  Hard.  You've tried various books.  You've tried various genres.  You've tried taking a few days off from reading hoping that the spark comes back.  And what do you get for all your troubles?

NOTHING.



You don't know whether you want to cry or yell and scream.  It's a toss up, really.


I mean, how can books just BETRAY you like this?  After you've loved them, petted them, and cared for them like children?  It's cruel, really.


But....then someone (very smart) reminds you:  It IS just temporary.  It won't last forever. 


Eventually you find a book that speaks to you.

That absorbs you. 

That rekindles that old familiar amazeballs feeling that you get when you fall in love with reading all over again.
 


Your soul sings and your heart soars and you feel so amazing that you are certain without a doubt you could solve world hunger and create world peace.

Oh yeah, you've got this. HANDLED.




Ah, it feels good to be back in the zone, doesn't it?
