This is where I post a QUICK WRITING TIP. A writing skill everyone should know. Whether it be technical or creative, useful or not, I'm gonna give it to you! You're gonna be singing the Def Leppard song: "Pour some sugar on me!"
Okay, maybe not.
Here's the Quickie for today:
I'm sure we all do our share of borrowing books from friends, relatives, libraries, etc. It's become a little more difficult in the age of e-books, but I think it still happens quite a lot. And there is 100% nothing wrong with this in my opinion, so no one send me hate comments. I borrow books a ton. In fact, I have at least a half dozen borrowed books on my nightstand. But the point I am trying to make is that it is still important to support the authors we know and love, and BUY their books.
You might say, "That's easy for that B-Word to say! Books are expensive!"
But I'm telling you, there are deals if you look! They go on sale for $2.99 or less all the time, and a ton of best selling e-books are very reasonably priced anyway. You don't always have to buy the hardcover, though some books are definitely worth the investment in my opinion.
Not only does this act of purchasing books help the publishing world go round, these books you own will be a permanent resource to help you in your own writing. Study and reread the books you love, in whole or in part. Their style and flare just might rub off on you.
So...was the Quickie good for you?
