Thursday Spotlight: Cindi Myers

New Years Writing Resolutions

4. Read more

You wouldn't think I'd even have to make this one a resolution, but as my schedule has become busier with writing, one of the things to fall by the wayside is reading. I have stacks and stacks of books I want to read. I keep buying new ones because I don't want to miss new releases by favorite authors and other books I've heard about and want to try.

So in 2010 I want to make more time in my life to read. Reading is essential research for any author. It's important to know what's being published in your genre. And reading outside your genre is a great way to foster new ideas and new approaches to familiar themes.

Last year I did start listening to audio books when I exercise and on long drives. That helped up my consumption of books considerably, and it's a practice I plan to continue this year. I even have a new MP3 player which will hold even more audio books.

How do you make more time for reading in your life?

I have to try that strategy, audio books. It's on my 'to do' list.

I have an audiobook coming in the mail that I am looking forward to receiving. This will be my first one.
