“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
― Sylvia Plath
More goodies I didn’t fit in the last post!!
Write your story as it needs to be written. Write it honestly, and tell it as best you can. I’m not sure that there are any other rules. Not ones that matter.
If you read good books, when you write, good books will come out of you.
I got a Kindle for Xmas last year and it was instantly my best friend and constant companion – especially when I discovered the wealth of free content to be had. Who doesn’t like free stuff? I’ve noticed that there are an awful lot of free books about writing and I’m attempting to compile a list. I’m sure it’s not exhaustive- and I have not read them all, so some of them might be worthless, but- they’re free – what have you got to lose?
Fifteen Thousand Useful Phrases A Practical Handbook Of Pertinent Expressions, Striking Similes, Literary, Commercial, Conversational, And Oratorical Terms, … Persons Who Read, Write, And Speak English by Grenvill Kleiser
The Writer’s Idea Book 10th Anniversary Edition: How to Develop Great Ideas for Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, and Screenplays by Jack Heffron I HAVE read this one and recommend it!
The Perils of Pauline – Crafting the Female Voice in Genre Fiction by Robert W. Walker (free with Prime -99cents w/out)
And there’s more, but I’ll stop for now. This could become a regular column 😀 If I get any interest at all I’ll keep going 😀
