I'm getting into my latest novel. I always know when that's happening because I become incapable of reading fiction. No matter how interesting the story, I'll read a page or two and then need to put it down. I don't want any other stories in my head. I won't be able to read someone else's novel until I get my own on paper.
Pity. I was halfway through Gogol's Dead Souls and it's really good.
