Writers, are you reading? Like really reading?
And by reading, I do not mean passively reading a novel or a news piece or a review or something.
What I mean is…
Reading actively. Intently.
All writers read. Yeah.
But the secret lies in analyzing what you read. See how the words flow, how the sentences form, what adjectives are used, the headings, the endings.
Whenever you feel super-motivated by reading something, give it some more time and study it.
What did that write-up had which you felt so strongly?
How did the words connect so deep?
What did you love the most in the writing style?
Or that you could actually sense the writer speaking those words?
What was it?
Find it. Absorb it.
So, the next time you sit to write something, revise all the emotions and observations inside your head, and then start.
Find that connect. Feel it.
And then start writing.
