Read, Read, READ!
Before I continue onward with exposing the faultiness of ‘evolutionary thought,’ I want to touch upon a few other things concerning the style of writing. First off, there is an immense amount of so called ‘indie authors’ who do very little or almost no reading whatsoever and have the nerve to go on and publish a book, expecting to receive all kinds of praises from readers across the globe.
While I may not be the biggest ‘fiction fan’ on the face of the earth i.e., possessed with the obsession of reading anything fictional, I do read fiction. Not only have I learned a ton of benefits from these novels because they are entertaining, but also because I can make observations on how these sceneries and words are constructed in the realm of fiction. In fact, some of even the best ideas I have for books come from other pre-existing works.
For instance, the idea for the novel I am writing originates from the book ‘The Help’ in the sense of writing styles and other ideas. If I did not read books, I think my style of writing would be worse than what you (the reader) would have to endure. In fact, I would probably have a very limited vocabulary and have no place to critique anyone else’s style of writing.
If you want to improve your form of writing, there has to be a need to read and doing lots of it.
