L = Literature
Oscar Wilde said: If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
All great writers are readers. We consume stories. Many writers are veracious readers. Writers read to learn their craft. In learning the craft of writing, reading great writing inspires writers to produce their best.
US Political Debate/Speeches pre-Civil War
In reading material that is well written, the writer develops skills and critical processes. A well-developed writer schedules time to read new and classic literature.
A man only learns in two ways, one by reading, and the other by association with smarter people. ~ Will Rogers
