Using Reading To Become An Amazing Writer

As you’ve probably heard if you’re a writer (or a reader, for that matter), the best way to become a great writer is to read. Reading gives you insight into how writers are able to move their readers with words and what’s better than taking advantage of that?

Stephen King said that if you don’t have the time or tools to read, then you don’t have the time or tools to write. This is absolutely true! While I admit that I don’t read as much as I used to, I definitely see the value in reading a lot and I want to start to do so. Not only is reading fun, but it’s informational and helpful in becoming the best writer you can be!

Speaking of Stephen King, I’ve been reading his series The Green Mile and let me tell you, it’s full of some fantastic writing. I’ve already added tons of quotes from the book to my Goodreads account and I can’t get enough of his excellent writing. When I finish The Green Mile it will have been the first full length Stephen King novel that I’ve ever completed.

Reading The Green Mile is not only enjoyable, but it’s helping me see how powerful the right choice of words can be. Stephen King has a way of making you feel as if you’re part of the story, seeing and feeling the action of it all. He makes you feel real concern and anger towards the characters and that, is a very powerful thing.

I started writing a new short story last night and I already feel like my writing is going really well. Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but I kind of doubt it. It’s not that I don’t trust my own ability to write, but there’s something beautiful about writing while you’re reading a really good book – it puts you in the mood to move your readers with words. In a way, it’s almost like you feel the need to compete with the book you’re reading. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll never be as good as Stephen King and I’m not trying to ‘beat him’ in that way, but I do believe that reading a book that is wonderfully penned really does inspire us to become better writers ourselves.

So if you really want my advice on how to become a better writer, read really well-written books. Hell, maybe even read one while you’re writing your newest story. You may just find that the author you love has a way of rubbing off on you!

Goodreads: A Great Place For Readers (And Writers!)

As I mentioned, I recently signed up for Goodreads. I must say, I’m really enjoying the site. Although I’m not a fan of making ‘reading goals’ like some people do on the site (I think reading should be a no pressure hobby), I do like a lot of the other features. I thought I would list some of the amazing features that can be found on Goodreads!

1.) The Author Program – For writers, the author program on Goodreads is awesome! The site allows you to establish yourself and gain a fan base.There are also advertising opportunities though I haven’t explored them.

2.) Book Lists – Goodreads allows you to make lists of books you’ve read, books you’re reading, and books you want to read. I think it’s pretty awesome to see some of the books I’ve read listed in front of me.

3.) Rating Books – It’s pretty fun rating books and showing others whether you liked reading something or not. Plus, if you happen to forget, you can look back on what you’ve read and see what you thought.

4.) Reviewing Books – Reviewing books is not only fun and helpful to other readers, but it also helps the reviewer learn how to write effectively. I have to admit that I’m really enjoying the reviewing process.

5.) Quizzes – Along with being an informational site, Goodreads is also fun! Goodreads has quizzes that you can take about your favorite books and authors! You can also create your own quizzes as well. In fact, I’ve already taken one and created two!

6.) Connecting with Friends – Just like through blogging, you can connect with friends on Goodreads. Connecting with friends allows you to see what your friends are reading and discuss books. Who knows, you might just find your next favorite novel through seeing what your friends have been reading!

There are so many great benefits of being a part of Goodreads. I can be found under B.W. Ginsburg and my author page can be found here! I highly recommend that you check out this site if you love reading and/or writing!
