Read Your Way To Success
Each day I offer various tips and tricks on my website, but I also try to bring a fresh point of view when I can, to help potential writers become successful. Through researching the web and other resources, I've come across nearly every bit of advice, regulation and rule that has ever been written regarding proper English usage. This is what I'm trying to avoid on English With Elizabeth. It is my great hope that I am able to give tips and tricks that have otherwise not been touched on before, and in turn become invaluable pieces of information.
In this tutorial I should like to stress how extremely important it is to read as much material as you possibly can, if you intend on being successful and authoritative within your own compositions. If I were to credit one single thing in relation to my personal ability to write with ease and confidence, it would be that I've been an avid, insatiable reader since childhood. I can remember reading my first book while I was just a wee tot, and I've been reading most anything I can get my hands on since.
It is simply common sense to expect a better, more professional outcome within your own writing, if you have experienced a virtual slew of other peoples work first. Voracious reading is simply an extraordinary, unsurpassed method of aiding your own work in such an unrelenting and positive way, you'll be outright amazed with your ensuing potential.
There are plenty of days when I experience writers block, and feel let down by my own talent and expectations. What I have discovered however, is if I permit myself to accept I'm having a bad day and go ahead and read something instead of struggling to write something, my writers block miraculously disappears. Further more, it happens quite speedily. In no time I feel myself pounding the keys with such unabashed relish and delight, my fingers are barely able to keep up with my newfound writing enthusiasm. This auspicious happening occurs nearly every single time, if I choose to read instead of berating myself for not being able to write.
I do not think it matters a great deal what you read, as long as you read read read and read. Just because someone has decided to write something, regardless of what it is they are composing, it should never ever mean they stop learning and reading for themselves. As I said, I think this is the most precious piece of advice I can offer anyone. Since it has worked so wonderfully well for myself, I'm hoping to facilitate the confusing navigation of the writing path for others as well.
