NaNoWriMo: R is for Reading

Hey! Are you doing National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)? Follow me this month as I work through the alphabet of great writing tips, from creating ACTION to getting into the ZONE. 

Need a writing buddy? Email me at or comment in my daily posts. We can inspire each other to put down those daily word counts.  My goal this year: 5,000 words.

I know I'm  blogging according to my NaNoWriMo 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.

What are YOU reading?

Gotta jet!
