Literary Liaisons

A blog about writing and all things story…

Learn from the masters



Learn from the masters


At a function I went to the other night, a writer’s event mind you, one writer I sat near mentioned how she never had time to read novels because she was far too busy writing her own. All I have to say is that if you want to write a novel, you need to read novels!!!! Good, and even bad novels are our greatest teachers.
I too, am very busy writing my novel, but by reading David Guterson’s, Snow Falling on Cedars, Janet Fitch’s, White Oleander, Lisa See’s, Peony in Love, and Jack Remick’s, Blood, I am becoming a better writer because those sage authors are showing me the way. So, please, for God’s sake, READ! Follow the masters.
Here’s a list of great novels, http://www.adherents.com/people/100_novel.html#Novel100
or check out GoodReads, or go to the book store or check out Amazon reveiws….just read.
