For the longest time, I found it hard to write on a regular basis and produce as much research as I wanted to. I worked on the problem, and I’m happy to report that I have conquered it completely. I’m now very productive in research, I publish, I feel good about my effectiveness as a publishing scholar, it’s all good.
The problem I now have is reading. I don’t read nearly as intensely as I would like to. (I mean reading for scholarship, not for fun.) This will sound crazy but reading feels like an indulgence and a form of laziness. My new challenge is to eradicate this feeling and read as happily and consistently as I write.
