How Do you vaule reading in you life? I suppose to get someone else opinion.
What is the view on whether writing skills are influenced by reading habits?
I love to read. Of course, I get to pick and choose what I read, and mostly I read the news, blogs, historical and biographical novels, and mysteries. Reading is informative, relaxing, and familiar. I can't remember when I couldn't read!
Writing skills are definitely tied into a person's reading and reading habits. We pick up vocabulary and phrasing from what we hear and read, but reading is probably most influential. Here's a bunch of websites that go into this process in more detail:
Reading feeds the imagination. It lets you experience people, places and events that you would never have the opportunity to meet, go, see. It gives you the opportunity to gain wisdom from others who have had those experiences. It makes you laugh and cry and above all "think".
