Hello guys! Not feeling like writing a review post today, so here is a discussion post instead.
So I want you guys to think whether the following statement is true or false:
Every reader wishes that they could write a novel.
I would answer false, but I personally would love to become a professional writer. I love writing and creating stories and I am constantly weaving half formed adventures while doing mundane things. I’m a reader that wishes to be a writer and that’s how all writers start off right? Or most of them anyway.
Anyway for me, it’s hard to imagine not being in that mindset. Not wanting to create or weave or whatever. Just reading and enjoying a story and moving on. Not thinking how I would rewrite a scene or thinking about how interesting a character is and how the author constructed them or thinking how I could make my own writing better after. Maybe this is just me being weird.
But then maybe people just love immersing themselves in the story. Maybe some don’t want to be the storyteller, they are happy enough being the reader and are satisfied with their role. I’m pretty sure that writing is not everybody’s cup of tea and readers, let’s call these people Pure-bloods, just have no interest in writing a full blown story, but appreciate the Half-bloods (people like me) that do.
So are you are Half-blood (a reader who is or wants to become a reader) or a pure-blood (a reader with no desire to write)? Answer down below and tell me your thoughts about this topic. I am more than happy to discuss down below in the comments.
I’ll write soon.
