Writers, be careful about what you read…
Hello hello hello, my brother and sister bloggers and writers. It is a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh. I’ve already been out for a long walk this morning but now it’s only 2:30 p.m. and I’ll probably go for another walk before the day is done.
Walking helps to keep the Old Soldier physically fit the same way reading good writing keeps a writer mentally fit.
I’m re-reading Flappers and Philosophers by F. Scott Fitzgerald again. I’ve probably read this collection of short stories a dozen times over the years and I’ll keep reading it.
Because I know it’s excellent writing.
If a writer makes a habit of reading average writing…Need I say more?
