When I read, I find inspiration. Words, strung together in a magical way. Characters that behave contrary to the norm, who charm me, steal my breath with their aliveness.
Am I envious? I'll admit to wiping the drool occasionally.
Am I content to enjoy the work of others? Absolutely.
When I recently went through a bout of writer's block, all I could enjoy was take notes and read. Sometimes, reading was the only thing my brain seemed capable of doing.
And it makes me wonder, if you studied the habits of your favorite authors, if you'd find they are voracious readers?
I leave you with this. What are you reading? Has it helped you find inspiration?
I wish you all the best and..Happy reading!
