My mornings usually start with reading, and I read in spurts throughout the day, even if it’s just a couple of pages.
This hasn’t changed this month, even though I am knee-deep into editing my novel and writing a lot of other things.
I still read everything I want, except books in the genre I am writing in. My book is SciFi, so I don’t read books of that genre, nor a lot of fantasy, as there are fantasy elements in my book as well.
I have always believed that being a reader makes me a better writer, and there are many quotes around from other writers who say the same thing.
And to me, there’s nothing more relaxing than curling up with a book. That is a major added benefit.
