Read and Write and Read and Write . . .

Oh, what truth lies in this one sentence. Reading and writing are inextricably intertwined. A non-reader will never be a writer. It's just not possible. Reading voraciously, widely, and attentively (My apologies to Steven King for the use of adverbs.) expands a potential writer's vocabulary and his or her understanding of useful literary devices, sparks ideas for creating compelling sentences, and oh, so much more! If you refuse to read, you will not write, at least not well. It's just that simple. Read the classics, read modern work, read fiction, read nonfiction, history, biography, comics. Read everything you can get your hands on. You'll be surprised what you learn in the most unexpected places. There is no degree, no webinar, no education better for a writer than simply reading, reading, reading.
