I have thought about taking up a fiction writing project inspired by one of the members completing these amazing flash fiction pieces for competition. I typically focus on improving my writing for this blog, but thought a new challenge might be fun. With that in mind, I needed to research the fiction writing process, but since my time has been limited due to crazy schedules the advice needed to be concise and short. Hence, I recently checked out Elements of Fiction by Walter Mosley from my local library
It seems like every author and their editor has comments and tips about the writing process. If only someone could organize all the information by splitting the information by writing style and writing techniques. Oh wait… SOMEONE DID!
Writing comes in many forms and many shapes. They can be long or they could be less than a full page. Sometimes we need help figuring out what project to venture into next when it comes to our writing. That is why I like The Everything Creative Writing Book by Carol Whiteley.
If you look at books on advice for writing, everyone has their set of suggestions. A lot of the books share the same advice with nothing new or innovative to offer to the newbie writer. That is not how Richard Skinner approached teaching his audience about novel writing in Writing a Novel.
