I have been saving this post, “4 Reasons for Making Time to Read,” by Dayna Lorenta, from Chuck Sambuchino’s Guide to Literary Agents, since June.
In it, Lorentz shares four ways reading has made her a better writer. Reading, she says:
- Nourishes your writing
- Builds confidence
- Enables Revision
- Helps you sell your writing.
Click through and read the whole article. Share some ways reading has helped you as a writer then kick back and enjoy that novel you’ve so eager to get into. If anyone accuses you of being lazy, just tell them, “I’m developing my writing skills .”
