Becoming a Good Author by being a Good Reader!

I am apart of Good reads dot com and the main reason why is because I need to be accountable to myself on what I have read, what I thought of currently read books, as well as what I want to read in the future!

It is so important that we read as an author.

I prefer reading both good selling books and okay selling books. I compare them with my own style of writing. Secretly, I love to find all their grammar mistakes. It helps me keep my own books in percpective. Also, I love books that keeps me in suspense! I ask why? How did the author do that? What was the situation or writing style that made me linger and drive me to turn the pages?

I pick the book apart and analyze everything. If a book holds my attention long enough to forget my purposes , as an author and not a reader in picking it up, then I think that is an excellent book!

To become a better reader and a writer I need to continue to: read, build vocabulary, dissect sentence structure, find the voice of the author, and interrogate the writing-so-to-speak!

What are your reading goals for the New Year?

Are you reading any books during the Christmas Holidays?

Are you finding any time during the month of December to read or write?
