I stole this post from a blogger I follow, but yesterday was a long day. I don’t remember who it was. Whoops. I altered the topic just a bit anyway.
I know not every blogger who follows my blog is a writer. But I imagine every one of you is definitely a reader. Otherwise I have no idea why you clicked that follow button in the first place. Ha. But really, I think most of y’all read a whole lot more than I do and I think it’ll be interesting to hear how many of you are married to or in relationships with others who don’t happen to read much, if at all.
For me this question is SO easy to answer. I’d answer your question with one of my own. Girlfriend? What girlfriend? I have no one. Which is perfectly fine because I might be 23 but I can’t really imagine myself in any kind of serious relationship at the moment. (Unless Jennifer Lawrence is knocking on my door). All the girls I know now who are single are the complete opposite of readers. I’m not sure what the name for those people is. Lost, maybe? So IF I were to find myself in a relationship with someone I already know, then the answer would be no to both parts of this question. I know no writers. I know no readers.
But what about y’all? I can’t tell you how many comments I’ve had on this blog in which someone mentions their wife or boyfriend doing something, so I know y’all can actually answer this. Is your significant other a reader/writer?
On this day in 2014 I published A Novel’s Opening Line.
