I write about my thoughts and ideas. I share it to you (or the reader).
I am sending you a message.
You are motivated to write now. (I wish.)
Writer, Joe Bunting, enjoys how reading has affected his writing. He has noticed three things about reading's relationship to writing: Reading inspires, instructs, and connects.
I enjoy reading more than writing. (No pressure in reading.)
I find writing difficult. It takes time and effort. I must try my best in effectively communicating to you.
"Always proofreading, editing, and rewriting (for only one story or article)," my friend, Jon, told me. "It never ends." (No such thing as a "final draft.")
"I want to improve on my writing," I told Jon.
"Read book, On Writing Well," he answered. "Learn the basics in writing first. Keep reading too."
(I love to read now. I assumed writing was easy. I tried to copy how professional writers would write from reading their books. I had confidence. I skipped ahead. I forgot about the basics in writing.)
My purpose in life is to keep learning too.
