I’ve chosen to use my pay from a project to order books on writing, and of course, my unrealized dream of owning Final Draft is now… realized!
The difficulty in the books is that I urgently need to read and highlight them, but I’m up to my elbows in work right now, so I’m having to make my way through them slowly.
It’s one of those Catch 22 situations.
Speaking of which, I read the Catch 22 book years ago, by Joseph Heller. I didn’t like it. There are some books I just don’t like. Sarcastic books and artsy books really don’t hold me. I dislike Catcher in the Rye, and everyone talks about how it’s such a great book… But it’s not. Catch 22 just struck me as one of those kind of books that some people thought was clever, and just irritated and offended me.
