February 1 post (sorry for being late)
How has being a writer changed your experience as a reader?
A question given by IWSG monthly Challenge found here
Pride is a powerful sin and one I seem to suffer from as a writer. Not that I look down on others for what they have written but there are times I read something and feel I could have done it better. There is something to be changed or deleted altogether.
I write some pretty dark stuff that has me Jaded to love. Yet, all I read or romance themed books. Whenever they get to a “dark” part I nearly always get annoyed.
They can ruin a good murder or abusive past by adding this sickinly sweet verse like it is an end all. Oh the power of friendship and love can combat anything. Umm no how about the power of my fist inserted into a precious part of your body till you understand true pain.
I love romance novels, I love mystery, I love anything fluffy yet dark. Yet I have to much Pride and Envy in myself.
I WANT what they have so bad but Want to do it better then they ever could.
This is something I have to work on. Especially since I haven’t yet gone through the struggle to being published.
As a side note.
I have been dealing with a lot of death and sickness lately so sorry for the monotone writing.
