READ, READ, READ…
by Allwin Bright
Read, read, read. Read everything — trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it.
Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.
— William Faulkner
Faulkner couldn’t have been wrong. Could he? So I read, read, read, read. I then write. And I throw reams out of the window. 🙂
