Over time my views on different facets of writing have changed, in some ways contradicting other, previous posts on this blog:
Reading While Writing
Here’s my past view on this. Things changed from a quote by Stephen King. I don’t like King as a person thanks to a meeting years ago, but I still think he was right about this:
“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. …”
I modify this a bit: I write –and read — fiction and non.
Each one uses different ‘muscles’, different genres. different styles.
So: I read both now, each with their respective style.
Work For Free
Well, I don’t write anything for free like Wil, with exceptions: I still write for the newsletter at work, this blog, and Medium… but when I join their Partner Program, I have a chance to earn on it.
I may seem wishy-washy, but I have a method.
