Let Great Reading Fuel Your Writing Great writers read–voraciously and across many topics and genres. They read to learn, to research, to study the style of others, and to improve their own work. They read because they love the written word. But becoming well read takes time, dedication, and patience. The thought can be daunting–especially when you're eager to get to your own writing. Fred White, author of The Daily Writer, helps you sort through the plethora of reading material available by providing you with 366 engaging excerpts from ancient poetry to modern science, on topics from allegory to food to writer's block. Each thoughtfully chosen excerpt is followed by a brief reflection and a prompt that allows you to integrate elements from each piece into your own writing. The Daily Reader makes broad reading accessible, invigorates your thirst for the written word, and equips you to put the power of the pros behind your writing.

“Like The Bourne Identity turned inside-out.”—Christopher Farnsworth, author of Blood Oath This is a war. It’s been going on for generations. If you’re lucky, it will be your generation that ends it… At least that’s what the young ones are told before they turn eighteen. At that age they become fair game, and must kill or be killed in a secret war between two distinct sides—one good, one evil. The only unknown is which side is which. Hidden in plain view, the battles are fought through assassinations disguised as accidents or the work of senseless thugs. Joseph has a particular talent for such killings. Never questioning an order, all he needs is a name. But when a job goes wrong and he’s sent away on a punishingly dangerous assignment, he meets a girl. Her name is Maria. And for the first time Joseph has a reason to live…outside the war. Now Joseph must run from those who fought by his side, quickly discovering that the only thing more dangerous than fighting the war is attempting to leave it. From the Trade Paperback edition.
