Books, Fiction, Writing

To Read or to Write

She knew it was wrong. Yet, she went ahead. Her mind was in turmoil. But she couldn’t stop. The deadline didn’t matter. Blank pages seemed irrelevant. All she could do is read. All that she couldn’t do was to put down the book. “I really should write a 1000 words every day,” she told herself. But the last words were written days ago. She knew she was being bad. “How can this be bad for me when I’m enjoying it so much?” She asked herself and promised to write tomorrow.

  1. Indulgence or…? You can learn so much as a writer by reading what others have written …especially if it’s a book you can’t put down. Then you can question why you find it so riveting and whether and how you can incorporate these elements into your own work. So 1000 words a day can be an aim, but one which can be set aside for something better.

  2. Your post resonates. I knew I should write today, or at least finish reading my novel. Instead I watched back-to-back episodes of Suits 🙂
    Tomorrow? Maybe 🙂
