A Reading Writer

I read because I write. I write because I read.


R. C. Gonzales is the writer behind the blog A Reading Writer. She writes poems as love letters since she was in college, but it was only in 2015 when she rekindled the love for creative writing after joining WordPress’s Blogging University: Writing 101.

Currently, she has three published books:

Poems for S: perhaps volume 1, Between My Bleeding Lines Extended Edition and Between My Bleeding Lines.

Her writing influences are her favorite writers — Mitch Albom, Maya Angelou, and
Rabindranath Tagore; and her beloved singer-songwriters, Sara Bareilles and Jason Mraz.

She holds a degree in journalism and is professionally a communications manager. She believes writing is like breathing with words and a day won’t be complete without a cup of coffee.


A Reading Writer is a result of a random thought that struck me when I was thinking of a blog name.

I do not want to try hard, thus, I resort to a simple phrase that constitutes my prominent interests, reading and writing.

I choose the article ‘A’ instead of the ‘The’ as I am not a ‘The’ yet.


It took me a lot of years to finally leap towards the ‘blogosphere’. And there is really a ‘force’ that somehow pushed me to dive! That is this quote from Maya Angelou that I cited in my very first post titled Agony.

  1. I love your blog name and tag line. I am glad you left off the singing part because that doesn’t have that ring to it. All the best on your blogging and writing journey 🙂

    1. Hi Meenakshi,

      It was a delight reading your comment. As I’ve said in my email, your comment maybe labeled as spam. When I checked my spam box, I saw it. 😦 I am not sure why, but nonetheless, thank you sooo much! 😀 I am sooo touched.

      See you around! ❤
