Writing Resources

Glyn Pope and I have continued commenting on the Beta Reader post from the other day. I recommended the book: The 38 Most Common Fiction Writing Mistakes (And How To Avoid Them) by Jack M. Bickham.

This is a little book that actually has useful information for the beginning novelist. It is also a good review for experienced fiction writers. The chapters are short and to the point. Of course, I think Mr. Bickmam is a genius since he says such things as "Writers Write" - one of my signature comments too.

I thought it might be useful to all of us if people would post one of their favorite writing books in the comment section. Please, everyone is invited to jump in and contribute.

Find Glyn Pope here:


  1. I like the Stephen King Book - 'On Writing'. Also 'Eats, Shoots and Leaves'.


  2. I like Tim Atkinson's book, 'Writing Therapy'.
