    Excellent article! I read the newspaper everyday and books of any genre that interest me. My writing has improved and it’s a good way to keep your mind healthy.

    I’m boggled. Writers who don’t read?! Seriously? Reading is what made me become a writer in the first place. It taught me how to construct a sentence and how to use a semi-colon. It gave me an extensive vocabulary and showed me how to use words accurately.

  3. I know Nanette, it always amazes me too. Like a chef who doesn’t eat. I’ve discovered sometimes writers think it might influence their voice or they may “copy” what they are reading. It does influence voice–for the positive! And you won’t “copy” unless it’s intended. Thanks for your comment! Sounds like you are an avid reader–like me.
