Thanks to the internet and occassionally TV and Movies, i've managed to get a certain amount of information about certain books and the authors that wrote them. I know about the books written by R.L. Stine and J.R.R. Tolkien but i've never actually read them. I have read parts of the Redwall books but i got most of my information about them from either looking online or watching the TV adaptation. Is it wrong to try and be a writer myself?
Not everyone has to read a bunch of books in order to be an author

While its important to read, you need to pick that ink pen and start writing. It may not get published but you'll know where you're wrong.
