Does anyone think that readers just appear out of a magicians hat? I know that everyone is smarter than that. Readers love to read and what they read makes them smart. They are always looking for new books to settle down with by the fireplace. However, it’s important to know that readers progress one book at a time. The more books that they read the better the reader they become. It’s the same way with writers. The more books they write the better writer they become. It takes a lot of work to create great books that can then make great readers even greater.
As writers, we are always hoping to write better and better books. As readers, they are always looking to read better and better books. It’s a win-win situation for writers and for readers. The better we write, the better readers, read.
If writers work on it hard enough, they will create high-level readers. At the same time, the writers will have become high-level writers. What are high-level writers? They are writers that write at a high-level. Their books are high quality and readers look for them more and more. That’s why writers should never give up. If they keep at it long enough, they will become top writers. Then, they can take pride in the fact that they created top-level readers. Top level readers are those that look for great books with a great story and that is well written.
Writer’s can help readers more than they realize and vice-versa, readers and writers extract the best out of each other. Always do your best whether you are a writer or a reader. We’re all in this together. Each new book that I write, I try to make better because I want to make readers better. Hopefully, my new book, The Trail in the Woods, is just a little better than my previous book, The Segmented Tail, which was just a little better than my first book, The Killer Within. I hope that I’m progressing and I hope that my readers are also progressing. Thanks for reading and writing, Stan
