I’m sorry I haven’t posted a book review in a while, my friends. Thankfully, it’s not because I’m in a reading slump; I’ve just finished The Midnight Star by Marie Lu and I’m currently rereading Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. The problem lies in the reviewing process.
I am still seven reviews behind and I can’t seem to find the motivation to finish ANY of them. I’ve been working on the Wolves of Mercy Falls reviews for two weeks and I am literally half way done, yet every time I look at the post, I just close the window and start watching Markiplier and PewDiePie videos on Youtube. Hence, the reviewing slump.
Have you ever had so many reviews to do that you just don’t do any of them? That’s me right now. I’ve found so many ways to avoid writing reviews, I’m starting to think my goal in life is to be a master procrastinator.
This post isn’t just for me to voice my woes, though. If you’ve ever been in a reviewing slump, I need your advice. What are some ways you motivate yourself to write those reviews? How do you overcome the temptation to watch Netflix or to sweep the floor for no damn reason other than to avoid writing your reviews?
I have a mighty list of shows I can watch instead of writing those reviews this weekend and I’m tempted to just be a couch potato for the rest of my days. But I also want to review those books. I would also love to read more books, but now I don’t want to read more books because that just means I would have more reviews to write.
Oh dear. What to do, what to do?
