I agree with Stephen. It’s important to read for several reasons. It increases your vocabulary, allowing you to use the proper words for the story you want to tell. It expands what you know about the world around you, opening your mind up to new possibilities. It also allows you to question the world around you. What you think the world is may not be the world at all. Most importantly, it may inspire you.
There are many different types of writers, and for each one it may be a good idea to seek the right types of stories. If you want to write TV, catching up on the hottest shows might be a good idea. If you’re into music, vibe with some great artists for inspiration. If you have a passion for video games, it’s a good idea to level up your skills by playing some. I like to dip into all of these worlds for inspiration.
