How to Be a Writer

If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: READ a lot and WRITE a lot. ~ Stephen King

Superblogger Leo Babauta put it clearly:

“What we learn as readers, we use as writers. . . . Over time, our writing becomes in some ways a compilation of all the things we’ve learned as readers, blended together in our own unique recipe.”
