Let’s Read! One of the best pieces of advice that I can give you. A writer just writes! A good writer proofs their works! A great writer reads, proofs but also reads what others write. How can you express a good piece of paper if you are not aware of other opinions and knowledge on a subject? I read multiple magazines and newspapers to find out about subject. I use google to research and read what others think. Then I evaluate what I have read but also what is being said on news stations. Then I write!
How to Read
When you are reading about a news article be open minded. Do not start with an already formed opinion. Then it is useless to read because you will not draw in the necessary knowledge to write an open honest review. We are busy every day with so many things on our plate but to be a great writer we need to read as much as possible. Excuse me did I tell you that in order to be a good writer read your own stuff. To be a great writer read the materials that others have written. Reading is vital in order to write.
What to Read
The purpose behind reading is to focus in on what your interests are and what you are writing about. If you are writing about climate change then don’t read about the next flight to the moon. While you are doing your research, many interesting topics will appear but bypass them and do the read you need. It is astonishing how much time you waste reading off shoot articles that do not pertain to your project. The common excuse there this is material that will help me write a new article. In truth, you may never write about that information.
Let’s Read! Is the main part of a great writer’s ability to be great! You need to read daily on the topics and subjects that interest you and that you will be writing about. You need to do research and read the works of others to formulate an opinion that is not bias but truth worthy. A great writer is not narrow minded. A great writer has a large spectrum of knowledge to help form opinions and relate information in direct response to the needs of the public. First become an avid reader then try your hand at writing.
