March IWSG Post and my Reading Preference


Time is really flying fast. I clearly remember the first day of 2021 and now we are 2 months down. After a lull, Covid-19 is once again rearing its ugly head and spreading its tentacles in India, though the vaccination of health workers and doctors has started.

I’ve been writing a lot, working on a non-fiction book, with a looming deadline. I’ve written 3 picture books in verse in the last 2 months, for a non-poet like me it’s a big achievement.

I was looking forward to the March IWSG, as I wanted to catch up with everyone. IWSG (Insecure Writers Support Group) is an online group posting on the first Wednesday of the month. Our IWSG posts revolve around writing, most of us build our posts on the IWSG question of the month. Do visit the IWSG website for helpful articles, featuring industry professionals.

IWSG is the brainchild of Ninja Captain Alex J Cavanaugh, author of Amazon Bestsellers: CassaStar, CassaStorm, CassaFire and Dragon of the Stars, with many more on the way.

March 3 question - Everyone has a favorite genre or genres to write. But what about your reading preferences? Do you read widely or only within the genre(s) you create stories for? What motivates your reading choice?

The awesome co-hosts for the March 3 posting of the IWSG are Sarah - The Faux Fountain Pen, Jacqui Murray, Chemist Ken, Victoria Marie Lees,  Natalie Aquirre, JQ Rose

I love reading across genres and age groups. Fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian, thrillers, children’s books, motivational books, adult novels, non-fiction, middle-grade, chapter books and picture books, I devour them all. I pick books according to my mood and also books by authors I love reading and word of mouth recommendations. I’m also adventurous in my reading choice, I try reading different genres all the time.
