If you want to write, read.

The number one advice I have for other people interested in become better writers, is to read.

I find it fascinating that whenever I’m going through a dry spell in my writing, I’m going through a drought in my reading.

The opposite is also true. As soon as I begin reading a new book, the creative inspiration and ideas begin to consume me in such a way that I have no other choice but to write.

The two activities are directly and positively correlated.

Reading serves as mental stimulation. It provides us with renewed inspiration.

As a general rule, we are readers first. And writers second.

So if you want to write, read.

A Short Poem on Creativity

I think everyone should create;

Sing, dance, draw, write

Paint, build, weave, invent

You’re the only one who can shine your light.

God didn’t create us because He was lonely and needed us. Just as a songwriter doesn’t write a song because he needs the song.

A songwriter writes a song because he needs to communicate himself.

So it is with God, when He created us.
