If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” ~ Stephen King
I really do think that he's correct in this quote. It's something that resounds with me. There are many authors’ that probably need to read more. It doesn't matter what you read either, you just need to read.
I still read a lot of books and review them. Not to brag but I've read almost 100 books this year, I'm reading my 95th right now. As a result, I'm finding my ideas flow better and my writing has improved. If you haven’t noticed my books are getting longer also and the stories are getting more complex. My reading speed has also increased which has allowed me to read even more books than I have before.
