Read for Fun

Read for Fun smallOne of the best ways to improve your writing (apart from writing itself) is to read. And not just read the sources your research turns up, but also to read for pleasure. Particularly if you are nervous or unsure about written language, immersing yourself in a story that interests you can be really helpful to get a feel for language, the way sentences flow together and it will also improve our spelling (unless the book is written in dialect).

If you don’t want to read, listen to audio books or talk radio, that won’t improve your spelling, but will still do wonders for an appreciation of language – which will come in handy when you write yourself.
