How has being a writer changed your experience as a reader?
Short Answer: It's changed how I read every word.
Long Answer: Truly, I look at all the word choices, the structure, the themes, the plotting, etc. But more than all of that, I have to say, the first and most important thing I read for is characterization. If the characters don't ring true, act like real people, I don't review the book. Learning how to create characters is key for writers.
Creating relatable characters is a key skill. What's your favorite tip?
Edited to add: Finally, I feel well enough to actually be back in the swing of IWSG and promoting our mutual blog hop. It's been a long winter already. Let's just say, I'm happy to be back among the community. Let's rock the words we need to write, y'all!
Might be John and I a few (a lot) of years and added pounds ago.
