Confessions Of A Writer (Part 2)

Confessing time!

  • I wish I was more active. It’s hard to write and read when running or swimming.
  • I think the writers of Criminal minds are geniuses. Do you know what I’d do to write like that? No, you don’t.
  • In my free time, I watch a bit of everything. It satisfies my thirst for knowledge. And helps expand my imagination.
  • My right hand looks nothing like my left. Scars, blisters, pen marks, you name it, my right hand has it.
  • One summer I read all four Twilight books in 22 days. I can’t read nearly that quickly now.

Want to read part one? Of course you do!

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.
