Am I self-defeating? Reading is very difficult for me - my mind easily wanders and I get lost in sub plots and remembering who a character is and why I should care. As a "writer" I do not have the mental strength to keep things sorted - and am constantly bothered by my own question "Why should anyone care about this?" I read through a few of the shorter stories here and can almost make it through without feeling my mind shut-down. That is NOT a dig on the writing - most of the writing is engaging and interesting...but my mind...I find it completely easier to share my thoughts and ideas than to try and guess what will happen next while reading the thoughts and ideas of others. Time for Adderall maybe?
