A Thought about Writing…errr, Reading…

18 Aug

I had a fun realization the other night that I wanted to share here on SGL! I have been reading a book by Robin Mckinley (review to come end of the month!) and as it is a book for young readers, the area i’m wanting to get into – it has been good to read for more than just the obvious fact that it’s a great book!

When working on being a writer —-reading becomes research.

Score.

I’ve been researching for years and didn’t even know it.

So here’s to finding books that not only draw you into their worlds and make you sad when it’s over, but that also make you think about story structure, word choice and if, perhaps, you really do need a dragon in your novel.

Happy writing friends!

    I write poetry and it seems I always edit at least twice! I have not shared much on my blog, but maybe will do a few on occasion.
