To be a good writer a person must read. I may be taking this too seriously. I read YA, MG and "How to Write" books constantly. I think this is a form of procrastination.
I discovered that in doing all of this reading that I had not worked on my middle grade novel for over a month.
My New Year's resolution is to write more next year. (Mine and probably a million other's resolution).
Hopefully you are doing better than I am. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
