Tuesday Tips: Read

This may be the easiest tip of all.

If you want to be a writer. Read. A lot.

You cannot be a decent writer if you don't read.

If you want to become a better writer. Read. A lot. Especially in the genre you want to write.

My goal is to read about 50 books a year at minimum. Last year I read about 100 books. I am on track for that this year as well.

The sad thing is, even at that pace I will never get to read all the books I want before I'm dead.

I always have a paperback at my desk at work for breaks and lunchtime. I have my Kindle at my bedside for reading at night with no lights on. I also always have an audio book going in the car during my commutes.

  1. I completely agree. You can't write if you don't read - and I find I learn just as much from bad books as I do from good ones. Never hurts to know what NOT to do!
