Discussing writing books | Write Reads

We all know there can always be too much of something. Well, what about writing books? Maybe. I guess it really depends on what you’re looking for in the book and what you hope to get out of it.

As writers, we can spend a couple of hours in the bookstore browsing. And when we’re finally at the decent-sized section of the writing reference, there’s a little bit of everything. From familiar names and publishing companies, you run the risk of picking up something similar you might already have on your shelf.

Or you finish it and feel like it was something you knew, or didn’t get much out of.

So, throughout the year I plan to make it easier for you. I’ll be picking up writing books and reviewing them. I’ll also cover books that are writing related, but not necessarily focusing on a how-to.

I guess to begin this series, let’s call it “Write Reads,” with Deborah Halverson’s “Writing New Adult Fiction” and Betsy Lerner’s “Forest for the Trees.”
