Daily Prompt: Hobson’s Choice

If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?

My initial reaction is WRITE! Yet, this prompt was posted a few days ago, and I have yet to WRITE about it. I have been READING posts, so in all honesty, I must answer READ for this question. Even so, I am reminded of my first college books by Donald Murray Read to Write and Write to Learn. These primers confirmed how reading and writing collaborate in the creative process. Reading is essential to improve writing. But, it is important not to ignore the writing with all the reading. Reading blogs does inspire me to write my own, but I need to make sure I get my thoughts on the screen as well. I do enjoy the inclusion of both in my daily life and am thrilled I do not have to choose between the two.
