Reading for writing and writing for reading.
Writers Are Readers Too
by TL Clark
Have you ever thought about what writers read?
I’m a romance writer and love hopping around the sub-genres. And this is also my preferred genre to read.
I started writing to create the sort of books I’d like to read more of. I was getting increasingly frustrated at the plethora of series. My reading time is limited, so prefer standalones. And I’d read a very popular book which I thought was utter tripe; that really gave me the final push to try my hand.
Having chosen the indie path, I’ve discovered some great authors on my journey. I read and review books as much as time permits. Books I’d genuinely recommend to a friend also get reviewed on my blog.
This is not restricted to romance books. It’s great fun exploring other genres and stepping outside the confines of my comfort zone.
There’s been unicorns in a children’s book, paranormal detectives, competitive snowboarders, kidnappers, different planets, and old ladies adventuring through Scotland. All sorts.
And the wonderful thing is, the more I read, the more my mind expands. And the more my mind expands, the better writer I can become.
So, next time you’re reading, pause to imagine what the author likes to read. It might just surprise you.
