on Writing Forward:
A good book is a writer’s paradise. At least, it should be.
A book can be an adventure. It can show us the world from a new perspective. It can be a mirror, a microscope, or a telescope. It can reflect the world, magnify it, or carry us away to far-off places.
Books are extra special for writers. They entertain, inform, and inspire us. More importantly, they teach us our craft.
