I will tell people I read on Youtube they say ‘I don’t read any more!’ That strikes me as odd. Those that usually send way to many political stuff. How can you make intelligent decisions with out reading all the facts.
I talk to young people I ask what sort of books do you read then I’m told I do not read any more! Why? Reading is like any skill the more you do it the better that skill is honed.
Vocabulary increases the ability to tell a story knowing all that creates a well written story.
Writers are made its a skill and a craft not a birth gift. A book is like a pot luck meal. Its more then food for the soul its take away.
Reading George R.R.Martin and others I learn how a story is set up.Theres set discription that inclues all the senses down to the spray of water on faces smell of pines.Scampering of feet of a squirrel on branches above.
Or a class pet named Humphrey life seen through the eyes of a hampster. Oh how to love a human from a dogs point of view.
Hot to wander off Im reading.
