Reading and Writing

I have been reading like crazy lately. Out of the 30 books nominated for the Whitney Awards, I've read 22 1/2 but I'll get them all done, I think. It is always amazing to me the variety of books out there and the amount of really good writing. Doing all this reading affects my own writing as I look at the different ways other authors approach a story. It is all part of the learning process. Sometimes I wish the learning process wouldn't take so long, and I could say I did it and I'm published. Compared to some of my author friends, I feel like I am coming to the table very late in the game. But better late than never. Keep watching for me, because I will get there someday. Meanwhile, I have a little more reading to do.

I'm watching for ya!

I've heard over and over again the reading books really helps one as a writer. I think it's great you have read so much and are learning. I know that's how I feel when I read too.

BTW- I feel the same...watch for me..I'll get there someday. :)

So tell us which books are your favourites. I am always on the look-out for more reading material. I'm a reader not a writer!

I have nine books left to read for the whitney's. It has been a lot of fun to read them all. And you're never to late to the writing table.

There are quite a few that I like Barb. I'll send you a list.

Thanks Julie.

I'm holding you to that Autumn. Can't wait to read your book when it is nominated.
