― Stephen King
I have heard this said over and over by many different folks. Do you think it’s true? I do. The times in my life when I haven’t made the time to read, I also haven’t been very productive with my writing.
Right now I am reading Ken Follett’s marvelous book, The Pillars of the Earth, because a good friend nagged me sufficiently. Historical fiction is not my go to reading preference.
But this book is thoroughly engaging and it’s sparking my creativity in positive ways.
