When I started out as a writer, I didn't read much, and it showed in my writing. My greatest improvement as a writer came once I started reading voraciously. Reading gave me a feel for the flow of good writing, for the nuances of character development and the structure of a good plot.

It also gave me the confidence that I could do this too. The more I read, the more I wanted to contribute my own stories that readers could enjoy just as much.

Reading is also great for generating ideas. You might decide you want to improve on something that disappointed you in a book. Or you might just gather bits and pieces from everything you read and combine them to make your own unique world, story, and characters.(less)

An Update

I know it’s been a month since I’ve written anything here. It has been very hard getting through the last month since my dad’s death. I have only written sporadically. There have been so many other things on my mind as well. I just graduated with my electrical engineering degree, and I’m in the middle of the job hunt.


As such, this poor blog has been sadly neglected. I’m hoping I can change that...

A fun conclusion to a middle-grade fantasy series I've really enjoyed reading. Mull's worldbuilding in this series is insanely creative, and it has those elements of fun you look for in middle grade fantasy. It's also just plain fun to read. I don't ...more

About halfway through, I was sure this was going to be a four-star book. I was enjoying it, but it wasn't quite gripping me as much as a five-star read. Then the second half of the book hit, and I was blown away by the action and the revelations and ...more
