Reading Teaches You Structure

Have you read/heard/been told to read the kind of articles/stories/poems/books you want to write?

It’s good advice, because when you read what you want to write, you are training your brain. Each sentence, each paragraph is actively teaching you as you go.

What is it teaching you? The structure and pacing of that genre.

So, go enjoy an article, a poem, a book. Call it research. Your writer-self will thank you.
