Ever read a great book and thought, “Wow! I wish I could write like that?”
Yeah, me too.
Here is a hint. I bet that person that wrote that amazing, awesome book practiced…a lot.
Here is another hint, I bet they read a lot. And studied a lot. And then did it all over again.
In the beginning of my career, and even still to this day, I read, listen and reread a lot of self help books on writing and craft. And it never fails, with each new project my brain freezes and it’s like I have no idea how to write a book again. Between every project and sometimes during, I pick up a book to guide me, yet again, on how to write a novel.
So if you’ve ever thought about writing, or want to get better at your craft, here is a list of books I think are necessary to have in your arsenal.
LIST OF BOOKS EVERY WRITER NEEDS TO READ:
(Affiliate Links Are Used…What can I say? A girl’s gotta make a living.)
2.) Dear Writer, You Need to Quit by Becca Syme (and I wish everyone would take her advice!)
4.) Save the Cat by Blake Snyder (I highly enjoyed listening to his voice on audio format.)
-These ladies have a six book series, and I highly encourage you to buy all of them. I use these books with each and EVERY single book I write. If you are serious about your writing career, these are a MUST HAVE!
The other titles include:
There you have it. My list of top 11 books you must have right now to make a go of your writing career. I am sure there are other amazing books out there, and as I read them, I will update this list.
Happy reading and happy writing!
