R is for READING

Hey! Follow me this month as I work through the alphabet of great writing tips, from creating ACTION to getting into the ZONE. Then, go here to see who else is taking part in the 2014 A to Z Blogging Challenge.

I know we’re blogging according to the alphabet this month, but I wish READING started with an “A” because from everything I’ve been taught about writing, the most important thing you can do to improve your craft is —


Reading widens your skills as a writer, and gives you an appreciation of different writing styles. Books can inspire your writing, and of course can increase your vocabulary and spelling.

In fact, if you want to be a great writer, READ as much as you can.

Some of MY favourite books include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll (I love the Mad Hatter) and of course, the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. This year, I’ve challenged myself to read 25 books by the end of 2014.

What are YOU reading?

Gotta jet!
