Diary of a bad writer – Week 32

Diary of a bad writer banner

To write good stories I found that I must read the work of good authors. To find those authors I turn to my community for Excellent Book Reviews. Here are a few bloggers that help me find and read the books which inspire my writing:

    Heh, I sometimes wonder what would happen if my co-workers saw my reading list, or read some of my stories. But then, I realize the potential that they might be doing the same and just ‘appearing’ to be normal. Hehehe

    See?! I keep saying I’m not a good writer. I’ve been asked how I write “so well” if I don’t read.
    I read posts, but books? No. 😔

      My ideas come from everywhere. Posts, movies, conversations, and books. You are pulling stories from sources your not aware of. Add books to the list and you will be a better writer 😉

        Ha. My ideas come from seeing a rose petal that has fallen, or a strange light in a window. I have actually read one book, but it was under duress. It was “Ambulance Girl.” I read it in 20 minutes. (There’s a background story there.) I have an aversion to books, although I do have an almost reverence for them. I just don’t read them.

    Well said – we need to read, read and read before writing

    Spot on! I can’t believe a fiction writer wouldn’t also be an avid reader! 😃

      That’s what I’m learning. Read what they do as I come into my own. And it can’t hurt to mention reviewers that help me select.😎
