A few hours ago, I retweeted this valuable quote from Writing & Editing @Wrtr Stat in the twitter. William Faulkner quote. Read, read, read. Read everything – trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write.
Then I just keep on Googling about William Faulkner. Two more lines I had found, adding to the above quote. If it’s good, you’ll find out, if it’s not, throw it out of the window.
This is the new perspective I had learned now. I usually read certain types of books. Further, if someone recommends me to read specific or several books. Of course, I do. But, from this quote, I feel I got something new, with regards to reading. So, whatever I get, I have to read. I’m gonna apply this quote upon my everyday reading habit. I have a strong hope, this will make an ultimate impact. I have no idea how to pick, but I have to keep reading.
Here, the challenging part comes, how am I gonna apply?
Apart from my usual reading (books). Every day, I have to read least for 15 to 30 minutes randomly any of the books and other magazines or any newspaper or precisely, editorial page.
Let’s read. Whatever we got. It’s our new habit.
Go-Ahead. Ladies and gentleman.
