Want to Write?

You’ve Gotta Read

“All attempts at gaining literary polish must begin with judicious reading,” H. P. Lovecraft famously advised aspiring writers. Indeed, reading is an essential skill on par with writing, and though non-reading may be an intellectual choice on par with reading, reading itselfjust like writingis a craft that requires optimal technique for optimal outcome.”
