Uh, Oh. Scary Insight
Valerie Kittell

I’ve similar feelings. I often have to force myself to write, before anything else.

However, reading is fundamental for the growth of a writer (especially for a non-native English like me), so I guess we have to read a lot.

I’d add that on a social platform like Medium, reading is also a form of connecting and showing up — which are important for the feedback too — , and we need a lot of that.

In the end, my balance is heavily shifted toward reading and connecting.
