Read vs. Write

So many books, so little time.  What's a writer to do?? 

The way I read has changed over the years, in particular, since I starter writing seriously.

This month Peg Phifer at Go Ahead and Wear the Purple is discussing this very topic. She is featuring authors and writers who are learning to balance writing and reading.

Today it's my turn to post on Read vs. Write. I hope you'll stop by!


  1. I'll have to hop on over, thanks for the heads up! FYI - there's an award for you on my blog today. No pressure or anything, just wanted you to know.
    Have a wonderful day,

  2. Hopping over.
    Blessings, andrea

  3. I stopped on by, thanks for the message!

  4. Love the picture on this post! And I'm looking forward to heading over to check out your post - I definitely need some insight as to how to balance the reading/writing dilemma!

  5. I can't imagine being a writer that doesn't read, but it's really hard not to read at the expense of writing. It's the "how to" books that used to take up my time until I finally realized I'd read most of the recommended ones and I needed to stop reading and put the knowledge to work. I always have a good novel on my bedside table and I read non-stop on weekends, but I've resigned myself to the fact that I'll never be able to read everything. I have a TBR list that gets longer instead of shorter, but I'm okay with that.

    Now I'm off to check out your 'Read vs. Write' post and see what you think on the subject. :)


  6. Good article Carla. I read it critically as I trimmed my nails, sipped my coffee, plotted my school day, wrote a poem, researched allergy meds, and pondered the merits of rain and sun.
