Welcome to Thursday Reviews on The Write Conversation
Every Thursday I'll be posting a review pertaining to writers. It may be a review of a book, software, online class or conference relevent to the writing industry. Sometimes we'll talk about fiction, other times we'll discuss non-fiction. Our goal - to help each other become better writers. I'm inviting you to join the conversation as well. Let me know what you've discovered to help you. Ask for the help you haven't been able to find. None of us has all the answers alone, but when we band together we're unstoppable!
The Art of War for Writers
James Scott Bell
Writing publishable fiction takes the planning and preparation of an invasion campaign. From fighting self doubt to navigating the mine fields of the industry itself, victory can seem unattainable. As a successful novelists himself, Jim Bell knows that battle first hand. His newest book on writing is a work packed full of practical strategies and focused exercises, guaranteed to equip any writer for the conflict ahead. This small book, written in digestible bites, translates Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" into an indispensible handbook for novelists.
Personally, I keep James Scott Bell’s other books on writing within easy reach in my office, where they show signs of being well used. I know this latest release will join them. I recommend it wholeheartedly to aspiring and veteran novelists alike.
Don't forget to keep the conversation going -
