That is a hard question. I'm a reader. I've read as long as I can remember. When I was in fourth or fifth grade, a teacher who caught me reading when I was supposed to be doing school work (which was done, though she didn't ask me) said, "Quit wasting your time reading."
As a former teacher, I'm appalled that anyone would tell a reader to stop reading. Because I'm such an avid reader, I often can't find what I want to read. What can I do about that?
Write my own stories.
And that's what I've done.
