"My name is Helen and I'm a Reader (not a writer)"

"Readers compulsively search for me. They are never satisified that they know enough, and they are hesitant about addressing writing task until the “knowing” is complete, which it never is. They are intellectually honest. They deserve our respect, our understanding, perhaps even our sympathy…..They familiar rationale has an admirable note of humility: 'I’m not quite ready'."

Wolcott, Harry F. (2001) Writing up Qualitative Research (2nd edn) Thousand Oaks: Sage.

So which one are you? Are you a reader or a writer?
