Here is just a short little post to announce that I’ve added a new page this week titled “Reading List.” On it you’ll find books that I’m currently reading, books that I have on my radar, and books that I’ve already finished this year. I’ll be updating it frequently so keep checking back! You can check it out here.
When asked about what writers can do to improve their writing JK Rowling, among others, has consistently advocated reading as much as they possibly can.
I always advice children who ask me for tips on being a writer to read as much as they possibly can. Jane Austen gave a young friend the same advice, so I’m in good company there.
And it makes sense, reading not only helps expand your imagination, but also let’s you see first hand the craft of writing at work from someone who, hopefully, did a good job at it. And if they didn’t then you can learn from their mistakes as well.
And so, as you can imagine I have been trying to read as much as I can lately. I’ve decided to share my efforts in that regard in case anyone is looking for a good book! If you’ve read a good book lately feel free to recommend it below. Keep reading everyone 🙂
Read as much as you possibly can. Nothing will help you as much as reading.
Check out my reading list here. 🙂
Read a lot. Reading a lot really helps. Read anything you can get your hands on.
