I believe that sometimes a good book can inspire and encourage us to want to write our own book. My advice is to try not to read just so you can write better. Also enjoy the book and the actual story. Read because you want to. It is also a good idea to explore other genres. For instance, I was never much of a crime fiction reader until I had to proofread The Warped Web by Vivian Head. The book gave me an insight into a different world of crime reading, and I’m not just saying it because I represent the book and its sequel The Dark Web. Since then, I have allowed myself to broaden my horizons when it comes to reading.
