Writers Need to Read Too

All of the great writers admit there was a love of reading never ignored. The more a person reads the better the writing material created. Most people rarely admit the avenue reading opens up. Although it seems the work  as a freelancer writer seems to take up so much time there is time to invest in other things. There is an incorrect assumption there is none left for picking up a book and getting involved. In fact, reading is a very fundamental piece of a great ritual or routine.

These are just a couple of examples which point out how much it contributes to the work of creating material.

1. Education
Education is an ongoing process. In fact, it begins when we are born and continues until the day we leave this world. Writers  have a task of providing information and education those who seek out there work. Of course there are more than a few who simply entertain, but for the most part the responsibility is getting the message across.

Reading is a way to absorb more knowledge. This increases specialist resources, information and material . Take the time to stockpile weapons needed to get the job done write when publishing material.

 2. Emotional Connections
Not only is education gained through personal experiences, but there is also much to be earned  reading about another persons experiences they are willing to share. The emotional connections felt are wonderful for a number of reasons. Connecting through a book is great for writing.

Countless times the emotions evoked spur a person into writing something wonderful There are times when a conviction is shared in a piece of material lands on the opposite side something written. When a different point of view or ideal is found in a book it is eye opening for some and possibly enforces an ideal.

3. Entertainment
Writing for a living is work. There times when a break is needed. When this happens imagine reading for entertainment. When we were children there seemed to be a lot of time to read for entertainment. As adults it is still there if we make it so. In other words, take a time out. Zone out and relax.

Relaxation is some writers well of ideas. This is when the mind is relaxed and at ease. If nothing else, the next day working hard and fast comes easier.
