Read to Write

by George Angus
(Palmer, Alaska)

As I continue my writing journey, I'm discovering that one of the most valuable things I can do is to read. I read the genres that I intend to write, and I read books on writing.

Spend time reviewing the websites that are specific to writing. There are so many things to learn.

The bottom line is that if you want to write well, read often.

I don't read fiction much but when I do I read it as literature. I also read writing handbooks regularly. I cannot pass one by at garage sales etc.

Reading genres.
by: Joseph

I actually don't do that, and for one specific reason. I don't want to pick up another writer's style or prowse. I find that tempts me too much. So I read other genres to concentrate learning better writing skills like grammer, mechanics, dialoque, etc.
