- Read fiction for 30 minutes per day.
- Read great books in your area of expertise for 30 minutes per day.
- Read great non-fiction – personal development, sales, marketing – for 30 minutes per day.
Reading great fiction fills your mind with example of exceptional great writing.
Masters of the craft are your teachers, and when you intentionally focus on this while reading, you can’t help but add these tools to your own personal Author Success Toolkit.

And we bestow this miracle upon ourselves without ever writing a word, as I promised at the top of today’s article.
