Our love of writing probably didn’t start this way. More than likely your love of writing started as only a love of reading.
What about now? Still read a lot? If so, then it’s a good thing. You don’t realize it but writers learn so much from reading even if you don’t try to analyze it. What we don’t realize is that reading is like food to our creative minds. We see it when we look objectively at other works. We can tell who the writer was influenced by in their words and sentence structure. In turn these writers influence you.
