ReMyOwStMo – Day 28

This is it: the end. I am done with reading my own novels and novellas. I can take no more.

Anyone who read my last review (of Riders on the Storm) might well have detected a certain amount of review fatigue on my part. The truth is I cannot stand to write another bloody review of my work.

Let’s face it: the reviews I have managed to churn out this month have not exactly been models of insightfulness and illumination, and when it came to Riders,  I tried – oh Lord, how I tried! – to come up with something that would actually make it worth a couple of minutes of someone’s time to read.

And I failed.


So, no more reviews.

I only have one more book to read and then I’m almost done with ReMyOwStMo. My final act will be to list all my novels and novellas alongside my marks out of 10 for each of them. I might also throw in some of the reviews other people have written about my work, just to remind myself of how it can and should be done.

Then I will put Read My Own Stuff Month behind me, gird my loins and embark up the madness that is NaNoWriMo. And may God have mercy on my soul.
