Read. Read a lot.
It doesn't really matter what you read. Honestly, as long as you bring awareness to it. For instance, read the classics, but don't try to emulate their style. Read best sellers but don't try to copy the plot.
Instead, when you read, think about why you like what you're reading, and how you might apply that to your own work. Anything you don't like - why not? What doesn't work?
And my best suggestion is to take your favourite books and dissect them. Really work out why you like them, what the author has done to deserve your love, and see if you can learn from that yourself. (less)

I've also been dipping in and out of How NOT to write a novel, which to me is the most entertaining book about mistakes we all make as writers. (less)

Top Ten Utopian/ Dystopian Novels

A previous month’s blog featured the best of post-apocalyptic fiction, and in order to limit myself to ten on that occasion, I had to hold back some fantastic books which are not, strictly speaking, post-apocalyptic, but feature several nasty possibilities waiting for us if we don’t change our ways.


It’s interesting though, isn’t it, that authors tend to warn us about our actions through showing us

I’ve been put off this book for quite a while because of the title; I thought it might be horror for the sake of it, if you like. Stephen King’s introduction was no less off putting; he reckons it’s the scariest book he’s ever written, believed it to ...more

I read this many years ago, and couldn’t remember it, but wanted to reread it for the handling of time travel.
The problem with the book is that the narrator is unlike able. Well drawn yes, but there is not much incentive to read on and check he come
