When did your love affair with good stories begin?
The first time a child picks up her first chapter book to challenge her newly acquired reading skills, and she's caught up in a world she fully understands, the world of IMAGINATION, she falls in love with reading! Within the pages of books, she identifies with characters who are different, gifted, challenged, royalty, or merely undeniably human. She visits exotic far-away places, (some of them real), experiences foreign cultures, is introduced to new ideas and escapes into worlds where problems are solved successfully and magically. A good story can transport you out of your mundane or drama-filled life into improbable, impossible, yet totally believable stories. And yet, finding new books to read can be frustrating. It is discouraging to download or buy a highly recommended book only to be slapped in the face with obscene language, suggestive scenes or violence. And while you love to read, you also desire to nourish your mind with uplifting, inspirational material, but where can you go to find fresh, new books that you can trust?

Why Writers Need to Read if They Want to Be Good
There are several times we have received manuscripts that aren’t good enough. Sometimes we wish they would be! They aren’t bad because the story line doesn’t make sense or because we don’t like the character development, but because the manuscript was filled with bad vocabulary, typos and poor grammar. These “bad” manuscripts we receive have so much potential, however, the author simple doesn’t understand the fundamentals of good writing. If these authors would read more their writing would be better.
Now, we aren’t saying that simple writing is bad. We love simple writing. When it is done right. We think writers get confused between simple writing and fluff writing. Your readers are going to know when they are reading fluff. It is easily recognizable.
Writers should also be readers.
Writers should be reading… A lot. Articles. Novels. Magazines. And anything else. Reading is a helpful way to understand the art of language and value the articulation of words. As you read, you should remember ideas and thoughts and implement them into your own writing. Reading someone else’s work will inspire you.
Without reading, as a writer, you will often find yourself at roadblocks. Running out of words and ideas. Being a writer who reads is an important step to becoming the best writer.
How to start reading is easier than you think. Since you will be reading for career experience it is not necessary to read like those who read for pleasure. You don’t always have to finish a book or article. Pick the piece apart and learn new ideas and words. Learn to love reading again to become the writer you know you are.
