Always Read and Write

The principles of reading and writing a lot, for with the action of reading the mental process is developed for the smooth outlet of words when one writes. If the desire to read and write is not obtained then there is no hope that the dream to be a writer shall be fulfilled.

Any person who chooses to pursue this professional should read a wide variety of books on different topics include other reading materials such as journals, magazines, the newspaper and more. Reading a wide selection of material is a must, in order to ensure that the brain intakes a comfortable amount of knowledge in order to undertake the writing procedure. One should possess a bit of knowledge of everything but never an expert at anything. Which means a little of this and a little of that, a bit of science, technology, religion, arts and whatever else in the field of life. Learning is exact an ongoing process, so be informed about this and that. Keep in mind that we in this professional transport information to others who have never heard of it.

Visit the morgue and inspect the dead, observe the beggars, have a good look at poverty and also examine wealth, use the eyes as much as the brain to drawing information about anything so that your writing is good and that you brain can describe and write about anything.


Master the art of research and learn to dig for gold online, through books, journals, from the horse mouth or wherever the information can be found.
