With many countries of the world heading towards the easing of lockdown restrictions, people are ready to get accustomed to a new way of lifestyle. Life will not be the same as before, at least until the Corona crisis is completely wiped out of our world. We will not be able to meet our friends so often, plan a day out, or travel as before, leading to a new pandemic of loneliness. The question is, then how can we utilize this time most efficiently. For authors, this can prove to be a great time to enhance their writing abilities and to work on their first or next book. As Pablo Picasso said;
"Without great solitude no serious work is possible."
Become a Reading Writer
Stephen King says that
“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.”
Reading is a highly entertaining and engaging pursuit that comes with a lot of benefits. Reading can help anyone to grow as a writer. Apart from adding new words to one’s vocabulary, reading exposes one to new styles and genres of writing. You can learn many writing techniques like the art of characterization, different techniques for opening and concluding a book, plot development, the art of narration, and much more.

If you have been procrastinating to start your blog for a long time, then this is the right time to learn the intricacies of digital writing. You might not be able to interact with a lot of people in the coming months due to social distancing, but a blog can help you gain an audience. It will also help you to get authentic feedback on your write-ups through them. This way you can also develop your fan base and hence a devoted community of readers for your next book.
