Writers Writing About Writing

The thing about writing books are that they're written well.  :)

Not a surprise there but I think it's funny nonetheless.

I'm now reading The Elements of Story by Francis Flaherty, an editor at The New York Times.

Not a hundred percent relevant to my work but great tips on story telling.


  1. My husband read a book titled something like, "How To Write a Novel", which tickled me a little. :)

  2. I think it's so important to be reading books like that. Writers have to take the time to educate themselves. I' so excited that you are doing this.

  3. There are so many great resources out there. Read a little, write a little, repeat!

  4. I can't help but recommend "Bird by Bird" by Anne Lamott. It's got some great inspiration about the writing process.

  5. Say I Am You - I know what you mean.

    Slow Panic - Thank you so much. I agree with you.

    Chris - I need to follow your advice!

    Sherilee - Thank you for the advice. I have that book but have not read it yet. I will move it up the list!
