One of the things that I’ve learned through this process of writing a book is how important it is to read.
Reading gives you the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the style of what you’re trying to create. A healthy diet of books written by different authors in your genre is like doing language immersion. You pick up the cadence and unspoken rules of the road.
I sometimes have to remind myself that reading isn’t just for fun, it’s a form a self care AND research.
So read away and let your muse be inspired.
