Read. A lot!

July 2, 2008

Whenever I think I’m really good at communicating, I find it’s helpful to read what other people are writing out there. What this does is, it simultaneously humbles the hell out of me AND it builds a desire in me to write better, communicate better, do everything better. It tears me down and makes me want to start over. It makes me think, yeah. OK. I could improve here. I learn from it. I get inspired by it. It feeds me a little.

Who do you read when you’re looking for really good writing? Who has a style that makes you bleed with envy that you didn’t write it yourself? Here’s MY latest discovery, thanks to a tip from RagingDadBlack Hockey Jesus. Who do you recommend?
