Been a while since I tossed a question out here. But I was wondering, do you find your writing changing with your reading habits? I've been reading more of what's tagged literary. Writers like Dorothy Allison and Daniel Woodrell. And I find little bits of their lushness of language creeping into my stories. Now, I'm not on their level, and probably never will be, but I like what's growing in my writing.
How about you, does your writing reflect what you're reading? And do you like when this happens?
