If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. -Stephen King, On Writing

So, how does one strike a balance betwixt the two?

I don’t pretend to know, but I have decided to take a pro-active approach in 2012 by devising a reading/writing plan.


  • Read at least one book a week, rotating reference types with various genres
  • Write at least one hour a day
  • Maximize pockets of time in between appointments and exercising to read through writer’s magazine subscriptions
  • Keep mini-moleskins handy for serendipitous moments

How do you find time to incorporate both reading and writing into your schedule?
