Read as much as you can.

Occasionally I run into people who say they are or want to be writers and they don't read at all and I'm just flabbergasted. *note that reading and listening to audiobooks both count in my opinion.

Whether it's articles, books, short stories, poems, comics, blog posts, fanfiction, reading a lot is in many ways the backbone of being a writer.

Reading lets you explore different voices and learn what works for you, what kind of stories you like, what sort of characters. It's a way to broaden your horizons as a writer. (less)

I've been thinking hard about this question for the last year.

Being a writer... it's an interesting state because it's about more than just what you do, but I think it's also about how you think. I experience the world through stories. In fact, those classes that managed to frame the learning as a sort of story were often the ones that I excelled at. I am also autistic and have ADHD, which means that I recognize patterns really easily, so that in a sense I see the story even in things like math and sciences.

Oftentimes my "writer brain" as I call it, likes to make up random scenarios about what is going on around me. Imagining a funny coincidence, or perhaps an ironic accident. At times this means imagining all the worst possible things that could happen prior to an event. At other times, it might come up with an interesting mystery or history for some object or symbol.

I don't know if every writer's brain works the same but its how it works for me and I love it.

I also love that as a writer, I often have people tell me their own stories. It is amazing what you can learn about people when they think you will listen. (less)
