So, I was scanning through my blogger when i cam across this post by the 'How publishing really works blog' which struck a cord.
I read alot, but like many people i want to be swept up in the fantasy of reading. I don't want to stop and analyse how the author opened, or how they use 'said' instead of '*insert word* edly' as a dialogue tag.
I read to escape the mind numbing academic work (which involves lots of analysis) but soon i will be free and i think 'times need a chang-ing'.
So as an additional part of my 'fill in the gaps project' and as part of my usual reading, i'm going to make myself read all my favourite books in a very critical way and analyse how they work.
Stay Tuned . . .
