Read More Widely – Read everything you get your hands on, including travel essays, memoirs, and anthologies like The Best American Travel Writing. There are an infinite number of ways to skin a cat, so reading other writers’ approaches can reaffirm your path and give you new ideas.
Hone Your Craft – Many writers grumble that writing can’t be taught when someone suggests a book to improve craft. Yes, it can. Do you think visual artists pick up a paintbrush and go to town their first day? Nope, they begin with brush strokes and composition. General craft improvement guidebooks like The Art of Creative Nonfiction are good places to start.
