To be a good writer, you have to be a good reader. That’s why I started keeping a reading journal. It’s an excellent tool to keep the reader in me alive!
Inspiration seeker? I would imagine you’re trying to “be the good you want to see in the world”? Maybe these book recommendations will help in the endeavor.
A story has to have the substance that reflects life. It’s more than having a bunch of events happen; those events have to have a conflict to drive it.
