6 Writing Books I Have My Eye On


When I am intererested in a subject, I like to learn as much as I possibly can about it.

1.  The Plot Machine by  Dale Kutzera

I like the idea of having a book that takes you step by step through the plotting process.  One of the reasons why I have trouble finishing writing books is that I can't seem to finish the plot beforehand.

2. The Efficient Writer by Sara Rosett

Ever since I first heard of NaNoWriMo, I've realized that one of the most important parts of writing is learning to use your time properly.  This book looks interesting to me because it's about finding the time to write and then using your time efficiently.

3. Write to Market by Chris Fox

I've read two other books by Chris Fox on writing and they were so good!  The first one in this series is 5,000 Words Per Hour and the second is Lifelong Writing Habit.  Write to Market sounds interesting to me because I think it teaches you how to write with marketing in mind, so you won't have issues with selling your book once you're done writing.

4. Write. Publish. Repeat. by Sean Platt & Johnny B Truant

I like the Sterling & Stone, self publishing podcast guys.  I find it completely fascinating how they produce so many words!  It's inspiring.  So when I saw that they wrote a book on their process I knew I wanted to check it out.

5. Iterate and Optimize by Sean Platt & Johnny B. Truant

Another book by the self publishing podcast team!  The first book I mentioned is more about their writing and this one focuses on how they grew their creative business from the ground up.  It certainly sounds interesting to me!

6. Writership Anchor One-Dreamtime by Alyssa Archer

This appears to be a book series about how to write your novel.  In this first book, the author teaches you about the prewriting process.

Wow!  Seeing all these awesome books on writing out there makes me wish that I had more hours in the day so that I could spend more time reading.  haha!

Take care,
Marian
