Let’s Talk Bookish is a bookish meme hosted by J.R. @ Eternity Books every Friday. This week’s discussion is on bookish/blogging myths. It’s an interesting thing to think about concerning books and blogging, and it was fun to come up with some ideas!
writing reviews are easy
A lot of people underestimate the job of book reviewers! They have to read a book, assess the book, assess their feelings and then write a comprehensible and comprehensive review on it and then sum all their thoughts up with a single rating. That isn’t always nearly easy – especially since sometimes you just felt iffy about a book without knowing why and getting to that why can be tricky.
Also, writing isn’t that easy! I really struggle with not making my reviews all disjointed and all over my place, because when I start writing, my thoughts all come out in one big fart instead of organised sections, which can be extremely inconvenient.
writing books are easy
I don’t know about you – but have you ever heard people talking (and I have, multiple times) about how they’re going to just casually write a book one day? Like “oh yeah, I want to write a book” or “I’m thinking of doing fantasy because I like dragons”. Ahem, it is NOT that simple!! It always annoys me, I really don’t think writers and authors alike aren’t given enough credit.
When I first started my blog, I thought it would be the easiest thing in the world to bang out a post every day. HELLO?!!! I had no idea what I was signing myself up for 😂 (but really, I love blogging with all my heart, but it’s not easy staying consistent – I didn’t do an update post in May until after my exams because I was sure I would be able to squeeze one in somewhere… spoiler alert, I didn’t).
What do you think about these? 🙂
