Read Something Great!
The best writers read the best stuff. They learn the basics of a compeling story by studying the greats. Frankenstein: or, The Modern Prometheus written by British author Mary Shelly in 1818 is an excellent example. Various "retellings" of Shelly's book have taken place for nearly 200 years.
The history of Africa has been distorted by many modern narratives. Yet, Africa and Europe are woven together to create an intricate tapestry called Western Civilization. As a fiction writer, you should take the time to study it. You will enrich your literary works.
Science, magic and religion can co-exist in our speculative fables. There are many important books that speculative fiction writers should read but the following two should be at the top of the list: the Christian Bible and J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion.
