My friend and fellow author Tim Baker humbly makes a confession.
One of the first tenets in the writing world is to be well-read.
It’s one of those givens…in order to be a good writer you must read – a lot.
What should prospective writers read? you ask…
The accepted philosophy is anything and everything – whether it’s Gone With the Wind or the back of your cereal box.
Well…I have a confession to make, but before I bare my soul…I want to say that I do love to read. I read as much as I can (when I’m not writing) so I would like you to take that fact into consideration as you read on.
This is my confession (I feel like I should genuflect and cross myself or something)…
There are many great…no CLASSIC works of literature I have not read.
Sometimes when I’m with other writers I feel somewhat ashamed when the conversation turns to Dickens…
