Reading as A Writer

I knew reading was just as important to hone your writing skills as writing is, but I never really comprehended what that meant, until now. When you are armed with specific analytical tools, and you can jump into the text and read as a writer, it is an amazing feeling. Every book I read now feels like I am just fueling the brain tank and learning the techniques of the masters.

I want to share this with you today because it has become one of the most useful tools I am using to develop as a writer. And I want to encourage any other aspiring writers, who do not yet know this, to go out and read like a writer. Part of this blog is the daily writings so you can watch as I grow as a writer, and the other is to share fundamental knowledge and skills I learn that I find critical to development. Reading as a writer is one of those fundamental skills.

Let me know how you feel below.
