It’s time to read

“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” ~ Stephen King

One of the most common writing tips out there is to read. A lot.

I learned to read early on, around the ages of 3-4. My great-grandmother spent her days dressing me up and teaching me the written word. Though I remember none of this, I will forever be grateful for my family’s hand in my love of books.

So, to write, you have to read.

Currently I am reading The Book of Speculation by Erika Swyler, and The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr..

What are you reading? Let me know in the comments section, even if you aren’t a writer, I’d still love to hear what you are reading. (I am always looking for a good book to read…) 🙂

 

Till next time,
