When I was a child my mom read to me constantly, so much that I fell in love with books at a young age. I was always ahead/advanced in reading, probably because of how often I read on her free time. I was always the kid that stayed up super late doing nothing except reading another book I couldn't put down. I always liked reading and enjoyed challenging my young self with more difficult books which helped me not just in school, it also aided in expanding my vocabulary. In comparison to then I don't read as often as I used to at all, which I am not particularly proud of. Now I am very particular with the books I reads and easily get bored of the book if it isn't the genre I prefer. I am not currently reading a book, as I struggled to find one that interests me lately. This summer I read the three books required(The Thin Red Line, 1933 Was a Bad Year, and How to Read Lit. like a Professor)although to be honest I did not truly like any of them. Last year I estimate that I read probably about 8-10 books, which could improve obviously. My favorite authors are Lauren Kate, and Sara Gruen because they are the authors of my favorite books. In my house there has always been an abundance of books because as previously stated I loved to read and be read to my whole life.
I am a reader who is extremely visual, I visualizes everything I reads effortlessly, I am also a reader who usually either really loves a book or really hates it, not typically an "it was alright" type person when it comes to books.I have grown as a reader the past couple years by taking honors classes, reading more advanced stories, and taking on more work.
I do consider myself a writer, I learned how to write from reading, listening, and self improvement. The way that each person learns to write is probably pretty individual, although the belief is that everyone improves with practice. Some reasons that people might write are for enjoyment, for entertainment, or possibly to entertain others. It's not necessarily about what people know, you can be a good writer without knowing everything. I like to write mostly fantasy(just like I like to read) and the occasional rant is nice to write to let things out. My ideas come from all around her, what I see, what I hear, what I watch, everything. Constructive criticism is helpful when it is done the right way. I, in all honesty never write at home unless it is for homework, it is hard to find time for such things now. I feel okay about what I write but to be honest, it could improve quite a lot.
