Quotable Tuesday

“Read widely. Don’t just read in the genre you want to work in. Everyone turns up their nose at some genre, but writers really ought not to do this, at least not until they’ve sold at least a couple of novels…Here’s why you should do this. Every genre has its strengths and weaknesses, different tools, different ways of hooking its audience.If you’re going to be a writer, you need all the tools you can get.”

  1. Great quote! Reminds me of the Ray Bradbury quote: “You’ve got to love libraries. You’ve got to love books. You’ve got to love poetry. You’ve got to love everything about Literature. Then, you can pick the one thing you love most and write about it.”
