Re: Be a Better Writer--BE A BETTER READER

I write non-fiction. I think I've probably learned more from my past non-fiction reading than I realize. There was a time I read a lot of it.

I realize my opinion doesn't hold any weight here because I don't write fiction. But one reason I don't like to read fiction is because of all the descriptions. I don't have patience for it. Just get on with it and tell me what happens next. ;)
