A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Patricia asks a particularly insightful question:
Ever read a book you thought you could have written better yourself?
In a word No. Now I’m not just saying that for the easy answer and the get out clause, i really dont think that there is a book that i could have written better.
Now I have read some great books and some truly awful books too. I’m mentioning no names or titles as i dont want to offend anybody but i would say that a lot is down to personal choice and not a reflection on the book or author, mostly!
So, why couldnt i do any better? Simply because i am no writer, at all. I might be a big bookworm and love reading others work, but my writing is truly awful as a whole. So, while i say that i didnt enjoy a book, i just dont think that i could do ant better.
