One thing I've been wondering for a while is just how many readers are also writers. I've always loved to read, and I've been writing regularly since I was about eight. This is true for some of my friends, and true to an extent for others (like they enjoy writing but don't do it "seriously").
I think pretty much all writers are readers, because you have to read to get good at writing. Reading gives you a somewhat intuitive sense of how to organize and plot and express yourself, and then you refine those skills by writing. Of course, not all readers are writers in the sense that they like to sit down and write every day, but a lot of the readers I know are at least very good at writing essays for school and the like.
So I have a question for you guys. I'm assuming you're all readers, but are you also writers? Do you write a lot? Or even if you're not a writer per se, are you good at it or above average?
