Besides last weeks, “Study,” another thing writers should do is read. They should go hand in hand.  Read and study, study and read.

Do not become caught up in the proper/conventional methods of study.  Read, re-read, and yes reread again! Read for approach, read for character development. Read for plot.  Read.

Heard recently at a writers question and answer session at a writing festival, find groups of people who will be honest with you and you with them.  Read each other’s work.

Now, go find something good to read!

  1. Having people you don’t know read your book and then give constructive criticism anonymously is a good idea as you can get a true feel of your own writing and what can be chaged with it, and how you can improve.
