How To Read Like A Writer Reflection

The Author began the article with a back story of his life in London, which started to make me think how it could relate to the title “How to Read Like a Writer.” Soon he began describing how difficult it was to read as he worked at the theater, because the amount of noise and distractions around him, which is where I started to get a little relation. Then he started to connect with title by describing how he began realizing the amount of work other Authors do just to create an entire book. The Author, then starts describing the skills he believes are needed in a writing a proper book or article you can say, but the structure in which he placed the question and answers in are very understandable and readable. As you enter a new paragraph the author begins with a question on either reading or writing or possible even both. Once I read a question, I began to start answering the question in my own words, even if it was wrong it still had my brain working and thinking about the process in writing. After the question Bunn (The Author) begins writing the answer to the question for that paragraph but in a way where you can really understand it and be able to relate to it in your own writing. This honestly allowed me to better understand the whole article because like I said at the beginning, I had no clue how the first 2 paragraphs had a relation to the title. When Bunn said, “The intense concentration required to read in the theater helped me recognize some of the interesting ways that authors string words into phrases into paragraphs into entire books.” After that sentence my whole thinking about picturing him writing in a theater turned into how much concentration I need when writing something, also how my writing process could relate. This soon made me more attracted to this article and made me want to read more and want to learn how he used these problems to find a solution through them.  Towards the end I realized how it all pieced together and even learned stuff from the paragraphs as well.
