Angela Ackerman inspired me to write this blog in her posting: Blogging Platform: Creating the Breakout Blog. In her blog, she mentions Donald Maass' WRITING THE BREAKOUT NOVEL. I confess I haven't read all the self help books on writing in a while. So I am do.
Let me give you a list of the ones I've bought and helped me grow a ton:
Self-Editing for Fiction Writers - how to edit yourself into print, by Renni Browne & Dave King is priceless. Having this book is as close as coming to having a professional editor under your finger tips.
Stein on Writing by Sol Stein. This book helped me tap into my writerly creative side.
The Fire in Fiction by Donald Maass (also good to have around). This book delves into "passion, purpose, and techniques to make your novel great."
I have more books stacked in neat little piles. But I will tell you about them another time.
What do you read to help you with your writing?
