I've always been told, despite my grammatical and spelling errors that I have a gift for writing. But how can I be a writer, if I am not a reader? What I mean is, I am not a person who regularly reads a book in my spare time. Reading, to me has always been a struggle for me, as I've suffered from a reading disability when I was younger. Thankfully, I got help around high school, before tutoring I was about 15 reading at a 8 year old level. Now days, I'm still reading at a high school level and I'm in my early 20s. I think this mostly comes into play, when it comes to reading. But I also feel it has something to do with a short attention span. If I do ever need to read something, I normally buy the book on audible or see if there is a free one off youtube. (there are lots of them on there!) I guess I am asking this because I feel out of place, when it comes to the forums and other writing communities. Everyone looks so smart with them saying "have you read this book?" And I look like a complete dumbass by not reading a lot. Thoughts?
