    You Listen And You Learn

    When you read, you're listening. You're absorbing knowledge and views. When you write, you teach others, and learn more yourself. You begin to think about things more and fuse concepts together. What we read is a combination of a writer's knowledge shared to the world in a form...

    I would prefer material

    that supplements knowledge and gives me the challenge of testing it's validity, if possible, of course. Writing is something I fall back on in hard times, and also when Im feeling creative. I like reading and writing down what I'm learning, I learn easier that way.

    Hand In Hand.

    Reading and writing go hand-in-hand as far as I'm concerned. I love reading as an extension of my writing. To see how other writers put words together, to witness the wisdom that other writers have to offer, to learn new ways of saying the same old thing is empowering to me.
