Reading has been the biggest key that unlocked parts of my mind.
It started at the age of 3 (young I know) and hasn’t stopped.
1000’s of books line my apartment, I get the most out of reading when the words are seen on paper, and the girls I bring home always get turned on by the books.
Much of what I read growing up was fiction, classics that are revered to this day. These books share great stories, true, but more importantly they give you a glimpse into the writers mind. You are shown a worldview by someone who has lived life taking in the details, filtering out the garbage, and sharing their wisdom.
To be a writer, you must be a clear thinker. Great books will help you develop that skill.
Reading these works is essential to becoming a well-rounded, understanding individual who can communicate effectively with people from all walks of life and different cultures.
I reread classics constantly and am always surprised at how much differently they are interpreted after time goes by. They act as mirrors into my spirit and help me get to know myself even more.
After rereading them, I will be posting the summary/insights here and providing a link for you to buy. Please support my work by purchasing through the link, every bit helps and I can promise that these books will be life changers.
