Sound Advice from Seasoned Writers May 17, 2006
Here's a terrific smorgasbord about different aspects of the writing business. Whether you want to write magazine articles, devotionals, fiction or nonfiction, humor or screenplays, you will gain a taste of what it takes from someone who practices this particular discipline.
The information is organized into three parts: The Writer, The Craft and The Business. Each contributor includes critical information for their subject. For me, the value of this entire book is captured in the excellent chapter from long-time fiction editor and best-selling author Karen Ball. She covers the seven editing checkpoints to ensure your story is a well-crafted as possible. While the emphasis is fiction, many nonfiction writers can also profit from the different points.
Writers at various stages in their career--beginning, intermediate or experienced--can learn from these chapters. I recommend this book.
