Learn How to Write Better by Reading

What we do here at Starbase 118 is more than just compile a story and keep a plot moving. What we do involves an art form that requires time and effort to be good at. While finding that time can sometimes be an issue, there are plenty of tools out there that can help you get better at the art when you do find a few extra minutes. Some of these tools you’ll find right here on our site, but for others, you may have to make a trip to your local bookstore or library.

One of the many common New Year’s Resolutions that people make is to get better at whatever it is that they do. For those of us who write, resolving to read more and write better is nothing new. This year, though half over, you can attain this resolution easily. With this list of nine books that can help you read and write on a higher level, you can actually sit down and understand the inner workings of writing and reading so that you can add a new dimension to your plot additions.

Writing for 118 is more than just throwing together a few paragraphs and calling it a sim. The best sims invoke emotion and lead the audience to love, or hate, cheer, or boo the characters in the spotlight. Make those sims even better and snag your readers with a new realm of writing ability and creativity today and reach one resolution so you won’t have to make it again next year.
