How To Read Like A Writer

You’ll need a book you want to read, a highlighter pen, and some stick on arrows like you see on legal documents that say: sign here.

Here’s what you mark up in the book:
l. Words, phrases, sentences you admire. That gave you a gut reaction.
2. Words that gave you an emotional hit.  How did that author do that?
3. Plot points; characters made interesting; how?
4. Story points that pull in the reader.
