Read a lot. Reading really helps. Read anything you can get your hands on.
Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people’s ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.

Have a great week and happy writing, Zigzaggers!
