Good writers read good writing. I say this a lot. People often ask me what they can do to improve their writing and this is always my answer (along with regularly practicing your craft).
Stephen King once said, “If you don’t have the time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write.” So, if you won’t listen to me, maybe you’ll listen to one of the most prolific writers of our generation.
But you may be wondering exactly how reading more can improve your writing. You may be wondering how to read like a writer.
