If you add all that to your answer I may very well accept it now, ;). Just solve the conundrum of "what is best for improving writing: primarily reading to learn, writing extensively for experience, or another approach entirely." I bet you have a lot to say about a different kind of approach, so just go full throttle. If you wouldn't mind, of course >:)

In other words, should I read to help me write, should I just write to help me write, or should I enjoy both without worrying at all?

You seem to be the oracle of the site and one the most helpful, so I want I make my position understood. What I want to know is the best way to to improve my writing. I read articles arguing reading vs writing. I want to know if primarily reading will improve my writing skill more efficiently than primarily writing. The problem is not what I once read, it's that I don't know what is better.

comment How to determine if a story would benefit from multiple first-person POVs?
Part of the reason I asked this question was because of WoT. My characters are merely two people who encounter others of equal importance. But I'm not planning to have anyone join the duo at all anytime soon. And if someone does join, it's highly unlikely they'll get their own POV.

I'm leaning towards first person because each character has a unique way if describing the world and story that is a form of entertainment in and of itself.
