A Writer’s Work is Never Done

Writers spend a lot of time writing, but that’s only part of the job.

Writers must also read constantly.  They should read books, magazines, news articles, fiction, and non-fiction.

Writers need to go out into the world and explore.  Writers need to try new things and have adventures.  If you spend all your time locked up in your house reading or writing, what will you have to write about?

One major benefit of being a writer, I can turn anything into a work related activity.  If I spent the whole day reading, I was working.  Going to the movies, museums, hiking, amusement parks, and having all sorts of adventures may be fun, but it is also research.

As a writer, my brain is always thinking about how I would describe everything I see, hear, or do.

I am a writer and I am always working.
