Read, Read, Read!

Standard

I’ve read on several occasions that “You can’t be a good writer if you’re not an avid reader” and the more books I read, the more I agree with this observation.

Why?

I think if you’re a writer and you find yourself lost in somebody else’s work, you think – “Wow! Why is that? What is this author doing that I’m not and how can I rectify it?”

I find myself inadvertently studying other writer’s books, soaking up their approach to their writing and seeing how they develop their characters.

Reading is such a wonderful experience – it can also be a great learning curve too, for all us writers.

I think you never stop learning as an author and can always improve your work.

Happy Reading everyone!
