Reader Confession

I feel like confessing so here goes…

Whenever I read a sentence in a book I don’t particularly like, I edit it in my head.

Then I read the edited sentence and it sounds better. I’m starting to sound a little pretentious. Notice my modesty there. Modest is my middle name in case you didn’t know.

This is why I take so much longer to read anything nowadays.

You don’t see eight year olds doing this. When I was eight, every book read perfectly.

Separating the writer when you’re a reader is harder than it sounds.
