Book Tag: 3 Days, 3 Quotes – Day 2

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!

Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote each day).
  • Nominate 3 new bloggers each day.

My Quote:

“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.

I Tag

Amanda @ The Limit of Books Does Not Exist

Susan @ Novel Lives

Diana @ A Haven For Booklovers

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!

Hugs 🙂

    1. Yes, factual writing is in a meaning both easier and harder, I guess. You probably don’t have to have so many original ideas – on the other hand, you must have an extremely wide knowledge of the chosen subject. Blogging is a kind of writing, though 😀 I don’t say we have to be as talented as someone who publishes a book (well, I wish :D), but it definitely helps to do it well, I think 🙂

    1. Ah, I would’ve been so happy back in school if my teachers gave me tips on reading/writing! Those who really listened to you and took your advice probably found this quote on their own by now 😉 That’s the magic of teaching: even by only starting them on their journey helps a lot! Maybe that’s what counts the most. 🙂

  1. I’ve been trying to think of a plot for about forty years now, but as soon as I do, I fully intend to write a blockbuster novel… 😉 More seriously, I do think aspiring writers need to read all kinds of books – how else could you know what works?

    1. I know the feeling 😏 well, not for forty years, but I’ve been thinking of plots my whole life I think. I had many ideas as a tween/teen, but always procrastinated, and looking back many of them were obviously thought out by a kid 😅 now I wish I had as many ideas, maybe some of it would even be good, but having a well-worked out adult plot has proven to be pretty hard 🙄😅 or I don’t know… I always have plot-fragments on my mind, but they just kind of come and go without really materializing. It’s hard in everyday’s drudgery to maintain and work out a creative thought. 😕 Then again, obviously real writers can 😅
