Read And Write As Much As You Can

The more you read the more you'll write. And the more you think like a writer the more you will discover ideas are everywhere. Whenever I read I keep a notepad and pen right next to me in case I discover a new word I like or phrase or joke. All these things are ingredients for poems.

If you just read one author you'll probably begin to write like them

But if you read 20 authors without even knowing it you will mix all their different styles together and come up with something new and original. This is what writers call finding your voice. It took me a long time and a lot of hard work to find my own voice but I did and so can you.

ABOVE ALL WRITING SHOULD BE FUN

If you enjoy writing something people will enjoy reading it.
