How do I find time to read and paint?

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. I rarely read anymore. I listen.  My brother and sister bought me the best birthday gift last year- an Audible membership! I receive a credit every month and that buys a new book. I listen while I paint.

 I've already listened to all of George Martin's Game of Thrones (so i cancelled HBO because I don't need to watch the show  anymore). I laughed when I read the reviews on Audible. People were so upset because he left his readership hanging after 5 long books. It takes time to write people. I know, because I have been working on the same story for almost two years now. 

Listening to Charles Dickens' Bleak House now. And I can't wait to listen to Timothy Zahn's Star Wars trilogy: Heirs to the Empire, Dark Force Rising, and The Last Command. 

Happy listening!
