I have found another treasure for those completing their NaNoWriMo: Writing Your Story! challenge or want help improving their writing . It is called The Complete Handbook of Novel Writing by Writer’s Digest. It is a bulky book that can intimidate, but if you get past the size. It is an uncut gem to improving your writing skill.
One of my goals for the year has been to improve my writing. It may seem like a lofty goal, but there are thousands of books about writing in general. One of my favorite books that I have used in helping improve my writing is the Everything Guide to Writing Your First Novel.
I think the best advice is how to format your writing presented within the book. It explains different plot structures that authors can use to write their ideas into a full story. It also offers ideas on character creation, which is an important element to story telling. Each aspect of writing is written with details and simple language for anyone to understand. The guide is easy to use and laid out in a logical manner for the beginners.
Last year, I introduce the challenge of NaNoWriMo. It is the challenge to write a novel within a month. It is a challenge that many people may have on their bucket list. It is on mine. I haven’t accomplished it yet, but after finals, I am thinking of taking the challenge. But until I can undertake the challenge. I looked into tips for writing. That is where I came across No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Bay.
