I write books; I read books. I write non-fiction pieces; I read the news, which is supposedly non-fiction. I write poetry occasionally; I've gotten out of the habit of reading poetry -- must fix. I wrote short stories in another life; I read collections of short stories occasionally.

I write blog posts; I read opinion pieces. I photograph things that catch my eye; I enjoy my Flickr Friends' photographs.

I tweet; I read tweets, well, okay, I read tweets addictively. I post Facebook status updates through third-party apps when I must; I read Facebook status updates through its own app.

I use Goodreads to read more; I wrestle with the Goodreads iOS app, finally acknowledge defeat, and go back to the website -- when I'm on the computer. I maintain

Great Courses Plus Mind-Body Course ScreenshotAs a NaNoWriMo winner last year, I received a sweet deal on a subscription to Great Courses Plus. I signed up for it because it had a series on Philosophy of Mind. My thinking was that if I couldn’t read my Philosophy of Mind texts and course work from 2012 well enough to remember, maybe I could watch a series of short video lectures and learn that way. It sort of worked. I couldn’t watch a 30-...

Shireen’s Recent Updates

Shireen is on page 20 of 675 of Philosophy of Mind: Continuing to read the related course module from 2012. Some parts I easily recall the imagery I created. Some present the text differently enough, I created new imagery. Added two new vocabulary words by looking up definitions and creating pictures for them. I’m almost back to reading for 30 minutes.

Shireen is on page 230 of 528 of The Lions of Al-Rassan: Having this sudden uptick in how much language I can create imagery for in one go before I must stop to give myself a word summary has resulted in shaving 10 minutes off reading 7.5 pages. Awesome! Maybe this is how I’ll get my abysmal reading rate up! Some reflecting going on; intriguing meetings in the night.
