All writers should read. You want to write books? Then, guess what you should read?
It’s that easy.
What makes it hard?
Comparing yourself to others.
This is an event that everyone can win. Just be yourself.
Ask why you like parts of what you’re reading. How did the author do it? Read and learn.
Or, find parts of a story you don’t like. How would you make it better?
Stop wanting to be someone else. Start going for the gold. Read!
