A short post I wrote about reading. I am no longer reviewing for Butterfly-O-Meter but I am back in a phase of intense reading 🙂
How have you been doing in the last two weeks? Have you fulfilled your writing goals and/or word counts? What are your plans for this week?
Blog not as quiet as planned
As you have seen I have not been as quiet as I had planned to be. I just had to tell you about two books I read in March and April. Reading is something that has come back into my life with a vengeance.
Reading again with a vengeance
As a teenager, I spent practically all day reading when I was not at school. My family was always generous with books as presents and the library was my second home. But then came a time when I just did not know what to read anymore. I had read everything of my favourite authors and I somehow could not find new ones. This has changed with a reading group I took part in for a while and with Goodreads. Ah well, and the Kindle.
Guest reviewing on Butterfly-O-Meter
All three gave me brilliant reading ideas and I am now in a situation where I have so many books to read that I want more hours in the day. Doing book reviews for Butterfly-O-Meter will give me some more ideas as well. Watch out guys: On Thursday will be my first!
Reading beneficial for writers
I think reading is very beneficial for writers. It is the perfect get out if life gets difficult and it is the perfect way to relax. But at the same time, it teaches you the art of writing when you take in the books well written. The badly written ones, however, teach you a lot as well: How not to do it.
So if you are like me and have been not so generous with the reading lately just get back into it. Besides the teaching books may also give you a bunch of ideas what you could write about.
May your weekend be full of good reads
That is my wish for you all out there penning down the “good” words ;-):
May your weekend be full of good books and inspiration and may you be happy!
