Episode 71: Readers Make Good Writers

“Learning how to be a good reader is what makes you a writer.”

~ Zadie Smith

In today’s episode, I break down how you can use your skills as a reader to inspire and support your writing.

The key ideas I share are paying attention to how the writers of the books you love to read:

  • Take you on a journey (i.e. the structure and order/organization of things)

  • Create a cadence and rhythm (i.e. sentence and paragraph structure)

  • Share a powerful voice (i.e. word choice)

You can use your favorite books as models for how you want to write!
