5. And Read as Much

The next important thing for every writer is to read as much as she writes, and I don’t think there’s any point stretching this.

While you’re honing your skill, you must ensure you read voraciously.

Read anything worth reading – journals, newspapers, books.

Just read them.

It may not occur to you, but there’s actually a learning process going on as you read other writers.

If you find reading tedious, it’s unlikely that you’re serious about your writing.

Writers naturally love the written word.

They’re drawn to letters.

They love to tell stories, to paint pictures with choice words.

And one thing that reading does for you is that it improves your depth, your flow, your familiarity with styles of various writers.2

This will help you in your writing.
