All the writers I know (like Arun Katiyar) say that reading and writing come in a package. So if you are not reading, then I understand you cant write either. Quite simple. Well, I have written (well, not) lots, but I was never a reader. I could never do that long stint. So my reading comprised mainly of poetry and short stories. They were short enough to hold one’s attention, and conceptually make one think as well as visualize. I like that.
But in recent times, I find it tough to even write, forget the reading part (Regardless of what the *propah* writers say about it). I am yet to discover the reason why, but, another writer told me — you dont think when you write/ what to write. You just write. Now, that makes really good sense, and explains why I am here!
