Time For The Motivation

 


Everyone has a favorite genre or genres to write. But what about your reading preferences? Do you read widely or only within the genre(s) you create stories for? What motivates your reading choice?

Maybe I'll flow.
Maybe I won't.
What do I know.
Could do or don't.

This way I'll write.
That way I'll rhyme.
What comes into sight,
May just be suck a lime.

Or maybe a lemon,
Just to get you going.
Like a little demon.
Eye rhymes a showing.

I could read a short.
I could read a long.
I could read and report.
I could come on strong.

Especially the preachy.
They get an eyeroll.
Most though is peachy.
Forgoing smut for a stroll.

Does that answer it?
Are you confused?
Read what I writ?
Grammar abused.

But I'll write it out.
What the heck.
No need for a drought.
Something always on deck.

Read what I write.
Write what I read.
Try a new light.
Always changing indeed.

So that is that.
Or maybe that's this.
A rhyme from the cat.
Beats a cough cough hiss.

At least for some.
Others maybe not.
Way of my rhyming bum.
Now on to the next plot.

Pat was oh so lazy off at that work thing, so the cat gave this answer a go. Does it have the same ring? Damned if I know. But read what we will. Write how we want. In one genre we don't stay still. Rules and stuff we taunt. And so that is it. And so I'll go relieve gas. Do you write or read in one or a bit? Or just all like my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy life forget the strife.

  3. I like to read in lots of different genres. I used to think of myself as only a MG and YA writer, but I think I might want to try writing in a different genre or a mash-up of two genres one of these days.

  7. My favorite is a good old fashioned novel, either classic or modern, it I also enjoy some non-fiction. My least favorites are murder/mysteries, true crime, and sci-fi and horror.

  11. I read a bit of this and that
    Nothing like my cat.
    He stares at my books
    While I give angry looks.
    I’m the one who likes to read
    He just claws, watching me bleed.

  12. I don't really write, so I'm not sure if I can answer this question. I do have my "favorite" genre, but I do venture out of of it. My favorite genre is historical fiction, but I do get bored of it and look for a change from time to time. If I read what I wrote I guess that would be like a Cosmo magazine or Glamour? So then, yes. :)

  15. I read a variety of things. Fiction, mystery, YA, biographies, cookbooks, maybe a little romance in the summer if I need a beach read. I don't really read a lot of science fiction, war books, or anything involving politics.

    1. Politics is good to avoid. Enough of that crap on everything!

  16. Such a fun rhyme poem. Thanks to the cat from me. I totally agree with your thoughts. Read what you like, write what you like and most of all be yourself, whatever taunts or sniggers come your way. Happy spring writing.

  17. I read whatever I feel like at the moment. Non fiction is my most favoritist (I do know that's not a real word). Honestly though, I haven't read much lately outside of kids' essays. ;) I'd love to curl up with a good book for Spring Break. We shall see if it can happen.

  23. Wait, where have you been? I thought I was the only one taking a blogging break. Are you copying me? Typical cat.

    1. Break would imply it was supposed to be. I'm more in a idgas phase lol copy that?

  24. I read a variety of things but I don't think I could even write in one genre and have it be entertaining. If I had to be a writer, I'd want to write text books or something like that... real engaging, I know. I definitely see where there is room for improvement though. The material that is out there now rarely interests the kids.
