In the middle of reading a book for list discussion, I felt the urge to write a story. Writing taking priority over reading, I wrote the story, revised, and submitted it today. I couldn't get back into the book. Despite being less than 100 pages from the end, I'd lost all feeling for the tension the previous pages set up. I felt as if I'd have to reread the book to regain it, and I didn't have time for that, so I skimmed to the end. Is there a better way to handle it, fellow writers?
