Read widely to become a better writer.
That advice has never been a problem for me. I’m reading all the time. It’s when I’m focused on writing where reading becomes even more important. I’ve written stories in a first person and third person POV. More often than not I’ll be stuck on revisions, trying to make the page come to life. I discovered my own cure and it works. Read books in the same POV. I’ll sit back and read a chapter from one of these gifted writers and I immediately return to my own writing and find it flows much better.
Here’s my list of MG titles that motivate me. Even if you don’t write for this age group, read a few pages and be inspired.
