Thank you Pamela, for sharing this link.
Hello Umesh Ji!
I liked reading your response to the word prompt, and I do agree with your title. Reading is important, in order to write good content.
Thank you for sharing your journey as a reader, and then a writer.
Keep up the good work. Thank you and good day.
Well done, Umesh! I subscribe to the central point of this response to the challenge. Without reading I would be nothing as a writer.
So beautiful and meaningful poem, sir. I enjoyed reading everything you've written. A very nice response to Brenda's word prompt 'writing'. Thank you so much for sharing.
Thank you for creating this forum discussion and sharing the link, Pamela
A great response to Brenda's word prompt, Umesh. I absolutely agree that reading is necessary to become a good writer. You have brought out the stages of life and the influence of the books you have read so beautifully. I enjoyed reading your article and poem. Thanks Pamela for sharing.
In your introduction you tell us a bit about your own journey to becoming a writer.
It's quite impressive that you read so much before you ever starting your writing career.
It definitely takes reading for us to develop our own style.
I, for one, am glad you are a writer.
In "Reading is Precursor to writing" you tell us how you learned valuable lessons with each book you read.
Then one day you decided to try your own hand at the written word.
Now a published author.
I love this poem.
In the beginning you show us the truth of reading & how it effected you.
I don't believe one has to read to be a writer, but it definitely helps us to improve upon our own writing style.
I'm not certain one could be a great writer without reading a little bit...but who knows.
It is a gift we are given.
Each one of us is unique. We have a voice that is all our own.
I'll post a link in the word prompt article.
Umesh, this is a very good response to the prompt “writing.” I too believe that we must be readers before we can ever become a writer. We need to know the things that engage and excite us in others writing before we can hope to replicate that in our own. We need to learn from other successful writers and adapt and apply those things to our own writing. I enjoyed your poem.
Being a reader first definitely helps writers. You are correct about that, Umesh. Thanks for the share, Pamela.

Do you follow hubbers without reading their writing first?If so how do you decide to follow them? On what criteria do you base their worthiness to be followed by you?There could be obvious answers but each individual can answer for themself.

Do you ever comment on a hub without reading it first?And does anyone read this part of the questions? It seems that people only read the titles of this website then comment spam everyone else.
