One way to become a better writer is to read good work, over and over. Read The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Courier-Journal, Today’s Woman, Leo, the Louisville Defender, material from the canon and classics, and the bizarre. Another way to improve is to bring your material to WWW meetings. Make about 20 double-spaced copies. If needed, I will make copies for you if you let me know several days in advance. Leave your nerves at home and put yourself out there. Come to the WWW meetings. Sign up to read. Share your work. Don’t create the beautiful or bizarre and hide it in a drawer. Writers need feedback and to hear good work. It feeds our souls. Brave comrade Joan Dubay was the only May reader with “Mowing Day.” Let’s vow not ever let anyone read alone again.
