Reading Like a Writer

Despite my misgivings about the phrase ‘to be a good writer, you have to be a good reader,’ I truly believe that reading is one of the best and easiest ways to improve your skill as a writer.

But it doesn’t come down to how many books you read- it’s what you learn from them that counts. In my video, I talk about how reading like a writer is a fantastic way to analyse an authors work in a way that can inspire you, and help you improve your craft by paying attention to what you like, and dislike about their novel.

Good thoughts and happy writing!
