Guest blogger Douglas Preston suggests you become a photographer.
Anyone who has aspirations to be a writer should take up photography. A writer must learn how to see things in a fresh and different way. This is an excellent way to do it.
NYT bestseller Douglas Preston has written 17 techno-thrillers and horror novels, most with co-author Lincoln Child. He has also written NF books about the legendary Seven Cities of Gold, Angkor temples, the Monster of Florence serial killer, and the Amanda Knox murder case. He teaches an intensive, week-long writing workshop every year for ten people, and one of the central aspects is photography.
