Writing community, tell me about a writing bad habit you just can't seem to shake in your writing process. Is there anything others in the writing community can do to help you shake it, or is it something you are just accepting as part of your writing experience for the moment? (Art by Brandon-Lee Welch.)

An important reminder from Sarah at MGC. You Are What You Read is a principle that probably deserves a bonus essay on my Networking with Writers series, both in terms of how it changes how one interacts with other people, and in terms of how it affects the stories that one is capable of writing themselves. I've regularly noted the massive difference in emotional and mental outlook between people who read The Chronicles of Narnia as adolescents and people who read Harry Potter as adolescents, and her observation here seems to be of the same effect. Harry Potter is all about the ends justifying the means, and Narnia definitely features means glorifying the ends. While this doesn't affect everyone, it does certainly set different trends in the fanbases of each series. https://madgeniusclub.com/2021/04/21/you-are-what-you-read-2/
