Some Favorite Authors…

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.

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.
