“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King advocates that you must read in order to be a writer, and I agree.
I can’t see how it can be any other way! You need to be able to understand how words can be used to create emotions, to paint pictures, to build worlds and to manufacture life.
How Much Do You Read?
Do you read every day? Maybe at the same time – before you go to bed, or even as soon as you wake up?
Perhaps you always have your nose in a book – at the dinner table, walking down the street, waiting in line for your coffee.
Maybe you struggle to find the time to read. Maybe you don’t read at all!
