To Read Indeed

Time to read away with what is on display. Whoops, in rhyming mode with what I say as we go about IWSG question day. Does your mind want everything to rhyme now? I’ll break that cycle right here. Blame the IWSG as they had a non-rhyming question.

How has being a writer changed your experience as a reader?

I just made you read two ways. With rhyme and without. Did that change things? Answering a question with a question isn’t great, huh? But like that, it can sure make one’s mind flip flop until they drop.

I now see things I never did before. I mean before I never would have picked out some words that didn’t sound right or were overused or slightly off in spelling. Just the little things like that. I also didn’t tend to look at the plot holes as much. I suppose I see those more in movies though than books.

But as far as writing style and such, to each their own. Yeah, I may now see things I don’t agree with and I’m sure others see it in mine as well. But everyone has their own style, understand that and one can enjoy reading any book more.

Now that the answer has come due, do you want rhymes in view? Or do you just want me to go long-winded even more? IWSG will have to go to the cat for more rhyme. See? A little long-winded by adding the cat. How about that? Whoops, better stop before I scramble your brain.

Do you see anything else while reading if you are now a writer?

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

Overused words – yeah, I see those now as well. Which is good for picking out all of those overused words in my own writing.

It has made me oh, so much pickier!!! And like Alex, critically reading what others write really does make me look harder at my own writing.
