Always editing

Reading other people's books for pleasure is very difficult when you're a writer.  You can't help analyzing every aspect of the book as you read it.  There have been many times when I thought I would just read for fun, but then before I knew it, I was thinking about the opening scene.  I began to take note of the hero and heroine's character points.  I know you do this too.

I have also noted how I look at movies.  Apparently I do the same thing while watching them.  I look at the characters and wonder about their arc.  I analyze the setting and think about all the inconsistencies.  I listen closely to the dialogue and think - who in the world wrote that OR wow, that was awesome.

Just curious - do you do this as well?
