Today I have a question for you?
Are you particular about your leisurely reading?
Does it affect your writing?
Here is something I have found out about myself.
... I cannot write while reading certain books.
I do better with books that I think are excellent and have the same imagination and writing style I strive for. They don't necessarily have to be the exact genre that I write, either, although a good YA fantasy is always hopping with inspiration for me!
* It inspires me to write better.
* It motivates me.
* And I learn from it!
I have noticed that if I'm working on my WIP while reading something that doesn't fit into this description --- my writing isn't what it should be. *sigh*
How about you? Am I the only one affected by this?
