I've spent a lot of time lately reading what some might call trash. I head to the tablet, download some free junk via the Kindle app we have, and then skim through some really bad writing. I've read some teen reads, some adult reads, some non-fiction garbage, and some short stories. You might ask why I'm wasting my time.
What I have found, at least for me, is if I spend some time with poorly written books, I can make my writing better, and also appreciate the well-written books that lurk out there. Warped? Maybe. But I have to do what works for me.
Because, as you know, FRN, it's all about me. Or you. I forget.
