I had time to read a couple of the non-fiction books from the two bundles I got probably last year (or one last year around NaNoWriMo and the other this year? Can’t remember).
30 days in the word mines by Chuck Wendig: if you’re just starting and need to set up a routine, this book is for you, whether you’re doing NaNoWriMo or just want to see if you can actually write. It’s very slangy and funny, and full of F-bombs, so if that’s not your thing, skip this. It’s also short and sweet, so plenty of time to read some more when you’re done!
The pursuit of perfection and hot it harms writers by Kristine Kathryn Rusch: some of her blog posts put together in another short ebook with lots of info on the publishing world, creative writing courses and how it’s impossible to write the perfect book – special guest Workshop Bill (a.k.a. Shakespeare) in a sorta parody like Workshop Jane (Austen) had here.
This book on editing also sounds good, but I haven’t read it, so I trust David Farland’s comments. I might add it to my TBR pile one day…
I’ve also uploaded on DeviantART some discarded covers:
Firebird – a Silvery Earth novella that should come out this fall.
And a detail of the sleeping beau of the story I’m still currently writing… that’s the first attempt, the final one will be much better! 🙂
I might go back to pencil portraits this weekend… or keep experimenting with digital painting! 😉 That’s just a… Sunday Surprise!
Have a great weekend! 😀
