Writers’ News and Writing Magazine bring out an annual competitions guide and a writing diary is a good way of helping you organize your deadlines for the ones you want to have a go at.
Read novels, non-fiction, short stories, articles, poetry and reputable writing magazines. You need this to inspire your own creativity as well as showing you markets to try and so on. I try to combine reading with a stint on my exercise bike so I give my body and mind a work out at the same time! Also keep in touch with the news, developments in science etc as ideas can be triggered from these too. You want ideas coming in from all kinds of sources and then make something wonderful out of them all as you use them to fire your own fiction. I think it crucial not to just read what you love but to read outside this too - non-fiction of all kinds as well as fiction you do not write.
To write well you've got to read well. You need to feed your mind.
