Of course, but not a month before or a month after working on a book. I'd rather not be unduly influenced by someone else's work.
I'm rapidly approaching retirement in my profession and seriously considering my second career. I have three novels on the shelf waiting to be dusted off and looked at with a fresh eye. All that's needed now is a dash of inspiration and a muse.
Just the jumpstart I needed, even after a 12 hr shift and having to be back on duty at 3am. It was worth the loss of sleep.
