Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme that asks a book/reading related question.
This week’s question is: Ever read a book you thought you could have written better yourself?
I don’t think so. Not seriously. Most books that I think could have been a lot better are the ones with characters and stories that just don’t capture my attention. I couldn’t stick with them long enough to write them better. Writing a book takes so much time! And thought! For the books that when I’m at my most judgemental and I think I could have written better – I would not be able to have the sort of long term relationship with them that rewriting them would require. I think I’d probably lose patience and then end up writing them more poorly than they were written in the first place.
