Awesome conceptual photography from Brooke Shaden.
Thought the readers and writers out there would appreciate this image. I did.
I’m a writer, not an author, yet. I have four jobs. Husband/Father, Day job, writer, and reader. Today, I’m gonna focus on the reader job.
I realized that reading is an important part of my writing life. Essential. So I have made it a job. A fun job. I set aside time for reading just like I set aside time for writing. I have reading goals. I read books I wouldn’t normally read because I’m trying to learn something.
I focused on reading just three years ago. I identified it as one of my jobs last fall. It’s a great job! I like the discovery of reading just like I like discovering the details of a story when I write.
I’m not saying anything new. The majority of writers I know are readers first. Their love for writing came from their love of reading.
That’s all. I need to go clock in. 🙂
We can hope that readers will write reviews, but it’s not their obligation.
