As writers, we all have those particular authors who inspire us and teach us. We love their stories and read them again and again. Maybe they are the authors who first got us interested in writing our own stories. Maybe they were the authors who encouraged us that, “If they did it, so can I!” 🙂 We pick up every book we find by them, because we know we will learn something new or enjoy yet another fabulous tale.
I’m looking forward to digging into my large TBR list again this summer! I don’t know about you, but everything in life seems to slow down in the summer and I find I have more time to read, write and enjoy the printed page. 🙂
Here is what I am looking forward to reading this summer…
I have had this book for a while now and I am looking forward to learning about the world of one of my favorite authors! I might be doing a little bit of research too….
Over the winter months, I recently got the opportunity to dig into this amazing book! I had been feeling the need to get back to my artistic roots and my brother recommended this book to me. I am glad he did! It was one of the most thought-provoking books I have ever read about what it means to create and what it means to be an artist.
I have followed K.M. Weiland over at her site Helping Writers Become Authors for several years. She is an award-winning, self-published author. The advice she offers on her site is some of the best I have come across online and comes from her years of seasoned experience.
When I realized that she had written some books on how to write a story, I was thrilled with the idea of reading them! I decided to start with the second book in her series, Structuring Your Novel. I already love to outline like crazy, but I don’t always know how to get my story into a structured form with clearly defined scenes.
There is more than one way to enjoy a book and the printed page! 😉
