Reading Rehabilitation

A Lesson by Camille Corbett

Because brilliance doesn't grow on trees, but it's utensils do.


I haven't written a lesson in ages. Yes I know I'm a scoundrel of the lowest form. So I decided to make it up to you by giving you a list of good books that will not ruin your writing style. For if you didn't know already, s**t breeds s**t. Meaning, if you read s****y writing, your writing will inevitably suffer as well. So don't. Anyways, here's the list, expect a lovely lesson soon, when I finally figure out what the hell I want it to be on. Shalom!

I'm a 21 year old Fulbright ETA writing to kill the time and find my sanity. I have been gone for a while. But I have returned, so watch out for some new stories.
