Day 2 of the 3 Days, 3 Quotes Tag has come! Again, thanks so much for Alyssa Grace @ Serendipitous Reads for tagging me! ❤
As I promised, I’m about to post quotes that I associate with blogging, reading, writing…
Yesterday’s post was about FRIENDSHIP, since in this awesome book blogger community there’s a lot of potential to make friends! ❤ See that post here: Book Tag: 3 Days 3 Quotes – Day 1!
Today is about WRITING!
So, let’s see the tag!
- Thank the person who nominated you.
- Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote each day).
- Nominate 3 new bloggers each day.
“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
Well, this happened to be about reading as well, but I love it because it shows how closely reading and writing lies to each other. One does not exist without the other. Because of this, it’s kind of applicable to book blogging, as well. You read, you write, you read, you write… you may have better and worse days… it’s all a struggle, but all a joy, too. And all the while you’re paying attention to create a just critic, you might even learn something about writing itself.
Do you consider yourself a writer? Or ‘something’ working towards that? Me, for example, I always wanted to tell my own stories just as much as I love reading other people’s. That doesn’t mean I really think I’m a writer, though. I’m a long way from that. But yeah, maybe someday. How do you feel about this? Do you think reading a lot helps you improve, or is it just for fun (SO MUCH FUN, may I add)? How much of a perfectionist are you with your blog posts?
I’d be so happy to discuss this with you!
