Michael Moorcock – “Read. Read everything you can get your hands on.”

According to the Huffington Post, reading helps:

  • Broaden vocab
  • Deepen subject knowledge
  • Helps readers remember grammar rules

Jonathan Franzen – “Interesting verbs are seldom very interesting.”

Diana Athill – “Read it aloud to yourself because that’s the only way to be sure the rhythms of the sentences are OK.”

Ernest Hemingway – “The first draft of everything is shit.”

Stephen King – “If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time – or the tools – to write. Simple as that.”

Will Self – “Always carry a note-book. And I mean always. The short-term memory only retains information for 3 minutes; unless it is committed to paper, you could lose an idea for ever.”
