You may remember from a previous post that I mentioned about reading deadlines. I now have the final Skulduggery Pleasant book in my possession, but I still need to read one more book for school (I have already read two) and then The One Hundred Year Old Man… by Jonas Jonasson, which I started beforehand…
However, I’m not going to write about that today. Instead, I thought I would prove the fact that for writers, reading is the main way we can hone our skill.
In my case, my writing has taken a bit of a back seat lately due to other commitments and the amount of reading I have to do. But despite that, an idea is still brewing in my head, and is growing with each book that I read.
Now, I have a general idea, along with a strengthened imagination. For a while I was unable to imagine characters, only a figure in the middle of a specific scene. But eventually, I have come to get a generic idea of what my characters look like.
Therefore, there is proof! Reading is so essential to improving a writer’s writing. Do you agree? Comment below!
