Reading as a writer

The way I read has certainly changed. I suddenly notice things in sentences that would usually pass me by, about grammar, structure, intention. How one sentence leads to the next, and when something doesn’t quite fit.

I used to get that a lot when I did a lot of editing at work, too, and I won’t lie, it makes reading more like work and less fun. But maybe it’s just a price I gotta pay to become a better writer.
