I don't have much to write about this month as am invested in getting this book done by the end of this month, so...on to IWSG!
The October Question of the Month:
It's been said that the benefits of becoming a writer who doesn't not read is that all your ideas are new and original. Everything you do is an extention of yourself, instead of a mixture of you and another author. On the other hand, how can you expect other people to want to read your writing if you don't enjoy reading? What are your thoughts?
My thought are...first, I've never heard of an author who doesn't read! But besides that, I think whether you read while writing or not, we are all influenced in some way by what happens around us in our everyday lives, so reading is only an extention of that. Even writers who don't read, if they exist, are still going to bring to the page what has influenced them in their lives. Voila. Those are my thoughts on the matter. Have a great Halloween everyone!
