by the numbers: Reading 2021
One of the most important things a writer can do to improve their craft is to READ. Read books in the genre you want to write in. Read books in other genres. Read the back of the cereal box and the words on printed on the tissue box. Read news stories (in print and online). Read things that have been written in the last week, the last year, the last five years. Study how other writers put their stories together. Study what words they choose. Study chapter breaks and paragraph breaks; ledes and kickers. Then chart your own writing path: Read, Write, Repeat.
