Some of my fellow writers
refuse to read
books in the same genres
they write.
They feel they’ll subconsciously copy
the other writers’ works.

My issue is…
how do they know
they’re NOT already copying
other writers’ works?

How do they know
they’re bringing new, fresh ideas
to their genre
if they don’t read in it?

How do they know
they’re giving readers
in that genre
what they want
if they don’t know
what readers are buying?

The benefits to knowing
all about your competitors
far outweigh
the downfalls.
Know your industry.
Know what makes you special.
