“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” – Stephen King
– Stephen King on how you can’t be a creator without also consuming
We need to consume as much media as much as we produce it
Newspaper, social media, podcasts, etc.
You know all the different types of media there are and how it changes the way we see the world on a daily basis.
You wouldn’t create half the things you know today if you didn’t consume it.
We are in the digital age or the 21st century as some other people like to call it.
As being a content creator, I have to write about things I constantly see or hear about which causes my reaction on the things I choose to speak about.
You used to read a lot as a little kid and fell in love with it but what’s stopping you now?
Is it lack of time? Lack of motivation? Whatever the case may be, start reading again and as much as possible.
Especially for people who put out content for others to enjoy it on a day to day basis.
I love making podcasts and blog posts but it wouldn’t be possible if I didn’t consume media first. Stephen King knew what he was talking about.
He was someone we all looked up to and how his inventions changed the world and everything we see today.
It may be hard to break the cycle of reading and making it apart of your daily routine but you will be glad you did.
Make that jump and try it out.
