Daily Haibun, August 14th – A reading writer

To become a good writer you have to be an avid reader they say. And I always thought to myself, well I got that down pat. Having read a small library’s worth.

What I haven’t realised is that I don’t know how to read whit an eye for how it’s done. Sure I’ve analysed books for an review or for writing litterateur paper’s at uni. And I might know why I think a book is no good. But I’ve never given why a book is really good any thought. I’ve just enjoyed them.

So now I have to learn how to read a book analysing how it’s done. Why it’s good, or bad. Picking its components apart to see how they work. That will be a learning experience even for such an avid reader as me.
