Writers who read can write better. More proficiently. With greater expertise. Masterfully. Adeptly. Okay you get the idea. We are constantly building a bank of ideas by taking in words from authors in the world of fiction and nonfiction. I often tell people that I have to read at least a book a week to refill my words (this is Joy, BTW). Okay, so here is what some of our writers are reading. Get inspired.
Regardless of how little time you have, writers can't neglect reading. To imagine that you have fathomless, inexhaustible resources within yourself is the height of folly. Drink deep from what others have created, benefit from their wordplay, stories, retellings and perspectives - the best writers read. Period.
