Just because someone is good at something doesn't mean they want to do it. I really like picking fiction. I weirdly even like reading stories that I know aren't ready for publication. On some level, I feel like it makes you a better writer -- and it definitely forms your eye for fiction that you like, dislike and want to read. Besides, rule one of being a writer is to read everything all the time. (0 likes)
