How’s it going?
I post a lot about reading and writing here at Fiction and Copy Decoded, but I’ve read posts from other bloggers and learned some lessons about engaging my audience.
You read blogs, maybe for entertainment, or information.
What else do you like to read?
I like to read what I write, or how-to books and posts about how to do something I like to do.
I’m almost all the way through City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare (the second book in the Mortal Instruments series).
Several months ago, I finished one of the best books on marketing I’ve ever read. It was called Getting Everything You Can Out of All You’ve Got by a guy named Jay Abraham. It’s a great business-building book. I need to go through it again.
That’s one thing I’ve learned from reading…
If something’s really good, it gets your ideas flowing if it’s nonfiction, or makes you guess at certain things in fiction–to try to get “behind” the universe that the author created, to figure things out.
What about you? Whether you write for fun (or money), or not, what do you find yourself reading? And how has that reading impacted you?
Drop me a line in the comments and let me know.
Until next time,
