You read a lot about writing when you pretend to write.
You read more of sketching lines and grammar and style when your 2016 purpose is to write. You underline ideas, highlight words, connect nouns with adverbs in non-spacial lines.
You read a lot. About the perfect plot. About the protagonist, the antagonist, Freytag´s arch, the drama, the climax. You read about screenwriting and characters and personality types -and discovered i´m INTJ or ISFP or all the others combined-.
You read acrostics, agnostics, ambidextrous. Facts, figures and figurines.
But you read and don´t write.
