A very dear friend admonished me, “You need to read more.” He always has a book at hand — at home, in his car, in the suitcase when traveling. Anywhere, if he is waiting, he is reading.
My life is busy. I barely find time to breathe. But in surrender to the advice of my friend, I offer you this quote from www.glittertrain.com:
First: if you want to write well, you have to read well. That means reading all the time, with passion and attention and alertness, and shunning crap.—Jennifer Anne Moses
