I was reflecting today on what got me into this writing thing. It is probably the same thing that gets most writers into writing. Books.
I can be in the worst mood and walk into a book store or a library and instantly feel happy again.
After I got my first book out there I started the road that is marketing/getting the next book out. Between that and personal stuff I made a huge mistake. I stopped reading. I think I went a solid 8 months with no reading and for me that is a long time.
It is strange really because it isn't like I am getting ideas from what I read. I think it is more so that I am resting my brain and enjoying myself. Of course if I enjoy a really good scene I will sometimes reread it and try to figure out what made me love it. Still, I am a better, more productive writer when I read.
This last month I have finished reading three novels and my writing output has never been better. Life is balance, mixing work with something you love can be very healthy.
Anyway just some of my musing for today. What are you guys reading? As always have fun and keep writing.
P.S. I added an about the author tab and something else up there I can't wait to share more on.
