Sometimes we need something to remind of us why we write. Sometimes we need something to help us through a sagging middle or a pesky re-write. Sometimes we just need something that makes us laugh. And sometimes, we know we’ve read a review, but we can’t remember where or when. So to make things a touch easier, I’ve compiled a handy reference. This is by no means a comprehensive list of books on writing, but it is a list of my reviews here at The Write Conversation.
*Bonus tip—Books marked with an asterisk are quick reads or are broken up into short chapters so you can read them even if you think you don’t have time to read.
Revision and Self-Editing by James ScottBell (this review was written by my dear friend Mary Denman)
Inspiration, Encouragement, or maybe a swift kick to the seat of the pants
*The Art of War for Writers by JamesScott Bell (Edie wrote this review)
I hope you find this list helpful and I’d love to hear about your favorite books on the craft so don’t forget to join the conversation!
