Read, Read and Write
Recently, a friend mentioned that she was in awe of my reading spree, the various genres of books that I read and that I read an erotica too.
Words fascinate me. I enjoy the different worlds they take me to and this in turn helps me to create my own new worlds. They say, better writers tend to be better readers, and better readers produce better writing. As for reading ‘anything’, Oscar Wilde has aptly said, “the books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”
So read, read and write is my mantra!
Written for the Write Tribe’s 100 Words Saturday Prompt for the quote “Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window. – William Faulkner
