Stephen King says that if you don't have time to read, you don't have the tools to write. I'm in college and all I have time to read are textbooks. I want to be a good writer but as a chemistry major, how do I find time to read the good stuff?


1. While you're studying for your degree, listen to audio books. Listen to great works of literature or modern fiction that you find interesting. Download them on your phone, plug in your earphones and listen to an audiobook in your car, on the bus, at the gym, when you're walking across campus, and even when you're falling asleep. While you're in college and consumed with analytical texts and assignment deadlines, audio books are, in my opinion, the best way to consume fiction.

Believe it or not, listening to a good book is an effective way to improve your writing skills, and once you graduate from college, you'll have a bit more time to sit back, put your feet up, and dig into a hard-copy classic.
