Wanting to write without wanting to read is like wanting to ____ without wanting to ____. (maybe like wanting to be a chef without wanting to eat! You fill in the blank…)
At the New Yorker Book Bench Macy Halford recently posed this question in respose to this both crazy and prevalent behavior among aspiring writers. “She was echoing a question asked by debut novelist William Giraldi who in the course of teaching writing at Boston University has noticed a growing number of aspiring writers disinclined to read.”
It’s called, this makes no sense.
