Quote of the Week–January 13th

Writing The Books We Like

“Learn about writing from reading. That is the right way to do it.”

– Maxwell Perkins

If you truly want to develop your own voice as a writer, don’t take writing classes. Read books. You’ll unconsciously pick out the bits and pieces that you like from other authors’ styles, and then work them together into a style all your own.
