The international best-selling author and fountain of wisdom regarding writing Stephen King, famously said in his book ‘On Writing,’ that to be a good/great writer, you have to read a lot and write a lot.
Now I have to admit that I usually go through long seasons where I’m either doing one and not the other. Now I have always loved reading but the writing has come in fits and starts. In the last six months for the first time in my life, I’ve actually done more writing than reading. The great thing about reading a lot and writing a lot is that (at least in my opinion) one’s writing tends to improve when one is exposed to other written work.
With that in mind, I’ll be doing a blog post every week where I share or do a review on a book I’m reading or have just read. I might also use this blog post to share a book I’m currently writing and what challenges/breakthroughs I made. I’ll be putting these blog posts under the category ‘Currently Reading.’
I’m currently reading two books at the moment. One of them is titled ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ by Simon Jordan and the other is titled ‘Post Pattern’ by David Chill.
Simon Jordan’s book is autobiographically and a major part of the book focuses on his time as the Chairman of football club Crystal Palace. David Chill’s book is a mystery thriller and is set in California. Private Investigator Burnside investigates the murder of a university football player.
I’ll be starting next week. Watch this space.
