Writing Challenge # 11


"Mrs. Duffee Seated On A Striped Sofa Reading" by Mary Casset


This month the writing challenge will be easy. I've seen quotes to the effect that if you wish to write well, you need to read good books. So...

----------------------------

The challenge is to read a good book this month. If you're up for it, read several. :-)

----------------------------

You can read something that is written well and is in a style of writing that you would like to influence your own writing, whether it's for adults, children, teens, or a specific group. Sometimes the blogging world can get a little too free and easy with writing styles - by this I mean the decay of English. Reading books that lift our minds and thoughts and that will have an improving effect on our writing is a good investment of time.

Or, if you need a rest for your mind and something pleasant for a distraction this month, read something that is light recreation reading for you. These are things that RE-create - things that refresh your mind or your spirit or both, and that don't make you feel pressured to perform or achieve.

Ecclesiastes 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
