If you're a writer, you'll want to check out the Insecure Writers' Support Group. On the first Wednesday of the month, we post on a related topic.
This Month's Question: "Everyone has a favorite genre or genres to write. But what about your reading preferences? Do you read widely or only within the genre(s) you create stories for? What motivates your reading choice?"
My Answer: I read broadly. I often find techniques and styles outside my typical writing genre that I can utilize to improve and enhance my own writing skills. I love to read nonfiction, memoirs (sometimes), thrillers, horrors, mysteries, historical romance (sometimes), and contemporary novels. The biggest motivators in my reading choices are: author, publisher, recommendation from friend, description (in that order).
What about you? What motivates your reading choices?
