I want to be a writer…
No, no, no!!!
Yes, I do.
No, no, no!!!
I want to be a reader. I keep thinking that I want to write, and perhaps, one day, I will. But, what draws me more – and yearns to me even more – is reading.
In fact, I am so bad, that when we have a quiet moment at work, I’ll search for new blogs to read. And if I’m watching a movie, but reading a really good book at the same time, I’ll read and watch. Hubby doesn’t get that, but I am a reader.
But, maybe not…
But, read I must.
All the time.
Let me put it this way –
In two years, I have read (and I’ve just counted) 54 books, with a few on my kindle still to read. And quite a few of these are novels, Ladies and Gentlemen. Quite an achievement when I consider all this reading happened while working a full day, raising a toddler (who still doesn’t sleep), being a wife and managing a household.
No matter how much I enjoy writing, writing it – it seems – can never compete with my joy of reading.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, I go through some phases on not reading. But, I always do make up for it.
Perhaps I should be an editor – because one of my pet hates is finding grammatical or spelling errors that are just so obvious it’s annoying. Not when your job – as in your full time you make a living from this – is to write. So, as I am expected to know my job, I expect writers to know theirs. Sorry, just a little pet hate of mine!
Any job offers for any editing jobs? Can work online and I love reading!!! 🙂
