I have been taught that the best way to learn to write well is to read more. I am taking that advice to heart, and sharing this blog with you to keep me accountable and to also help you achieve your writing goals. I tend to read non-fiction, but I am committed to reading more fiction, and in so doing, I’ll reference classic writing strategies and contemporary devices so that we'll all improve our writing.
