A short post due to one of our writers being away.
Writing is only a part of the process, (a big part, to be sure). But we’re also constantly reading. Learning. Educating ourselves.
So here are some of the things we’re looking at…
Publisher’s Weekly. THE source for serious writers, especially for industry news.
A nifty find by Paula. Synonym Finder.
I am re-reading this as the moment. On writing. Hey, it’s Stephen King. And he knows his stuff. Other books I’d recommend to help writers … Elizabeth George, Write Away. Don Maass, Writing the Breakout Novel. Hallie Ephron, Writing and Selling Your Mystery Novel. Oh there’re a lot of great books on writing out there, some by agents, some by authors, some even by publishers themselves. Not every book will speak to every writer, but it worth checking out as many as you can.
So those are some of the things we’re doing or using to make ourselves better writers. If anyone has any other links or suggested sites, please post them, we’d love to see what other people are reading/using.
