As a writer, my priorities and overarching purpose behind my work does not directly translate to my process of how I read novels and articles. Overall, I believe that I write to entertain, whether that be with the actual content that I churn out or the idea of putting my writing on a more public stage (ex: sharing my sports articles on Facebook because mom and dad love it!) As a reader, my judgements of other peoples work comes from what prefaces the reading. Who is the author? What did other people say about the reading? Do they have an intriguing headline or cover illustration? For me, as a writer with no established reputation, I hope to let my writing do the metaphorical talking.
