 Write Reviews to Improve Your Writing

Publishers, editors and agents recommend writers read as much as possible. One way to accomplish both reading and writing at the same time is to write reviews. Reviewers learn what works and what doesn’t. They can see how:

  • Conflict
  • Intrigue
  • Tension


They will improve their:

  • Characterizations
  • Setting
  • Story arcs

and overall technique., and are places to post reviews. Another is in local newspapers by local authors or visiting authors. I have just finished reviewing three books for The Sun News,, in Myrtle Beach, S.C. I probably would not have picked up the books otherwise, but I learned so much from reading them.

Try it. You are sure to improve your writing.

I published three ebooks in 2020: Women and Adversity, Honoring 23 Black Women; Women and Adversity, Recognizing 23 Notable Mothers; and Women and Adversity, Saluting 23 Faithful Suffragists to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. These books are meant to be study guides for all students from grade school through college to help in choosing topics for assignments and to learn more about these noteworthy women. Go to, and to learn more.
