I know as a creative person I should be this way, but I have the hardest time sitting down and reading a book. It's not that I don't enjoy reading. It's just that I don't feel very productive when I do it. Funny, I don't feel the same way when I watch TV, but then again, I frequently have my sketchbook in front of me to keep me occupied.
Since I will be teaching an art course based on The Hobbit starting in July, I have committed myself to reading the book before class starts. I know I will enjoy it once I start. It's just the getting started that will be tough. Are there any other creatives out there that have this problem?
