I hope each of you enjoyed this Tuesday. I have been busy with the family today, but tonight I wanted to discuss some thoughts that have been nagging me. Ever since I started this journey of writing book reviews, I have been wondering if how I read a book has changed. I have always been aware of small details that are incorrect, and how the style changes with each writer, so I do not feel as though I have changed my reading habits. However when I start a new book, I am completely aware of the fact that I will be writing a review, and with each review, I am hoping that my voice becomes clearer and my style stronger. I know I am not an author, and my writing is focused on informing others about what other people have written, but I am always on the lookout for ways to improve. My goal is to become a full-time book reviewer and help support my family, but my dream is to help guide readers to a book or an author that they will thoroughly enjoy.
Here’s my question to authors and fellow writers: Once you have made that final decision to become a writer and/or an author, do you now notice your reading habits have changed? Or do you not notice any changes at all?
I am still a couple of days away from writing my next review, but I will keep you posted. Have a great night.
