while you are reading note down the authors styles and pay attention to how idea and emotions are express it a good way to become better writer.

2. listen: if you are writing fiction stories, listen to what people say, because writting and speaking english is not the same.

dialog and authentic written is different.

listen for idioms,accent and expression.
