(Reblogged) Want to Be an Amazing Writer? Read Like One from Copyblogger.com

I’ve recently begun my foray into the world of freelance writing. To say I’m a newbie is a dramatic understatement. But, I have published one article on Parachute by Mapquest and am working on my second assignment for them. Slowly. . .slowly, but surely. . .things are happening.

I’ve started following and reading the work of a lot of more established freelancers and there is some really good stuff out there. The community seems pretty open to new folks coming in. Today, I ran across an article on Copyblogger.com called “Want to Be an Amazing Writer? Read Like one“. The article is by Demian Farnworth, a freelance writer who blogs at The Copybot. The article caught my eye because that advice–if you want to be a better writer, be a better reader–is advice I give my students all the time.

Go give it a read because it’s well worth it. Then, if you’re interested in writing, go follow Demian Farnworth on Twitter. For that matter, go follow me on Twitter.

Ciao for now!
