How much one have to read to be able to write something good? I know that reading is important for a writer, but i feel that it's possible to write something really good by reading moderately if you have something to say and learned to express yourself not only by reading, but talking to people and writing technical stuff - like would be the case for a lawyer or engineer.
For me this thought of "You need to read an incredible amount to be able to produce something decent" is paralyzing and eventhough i can see some logic in it, my intuition says its wrong and missing a lot of important factors.
What do you think /lit/?
