Here I list books and websites about writing that I’ve read and liked.


MSWishlist — A treasure trove of helpful twitter posts from agents and editors, and what they would like to see.

Absolute Write Forums — Large online writers’ community.



Self-Editing for Fiction Writers  — Love this one. Most helpful for writers just starting out.

The Emotion Thesaurus — I started using this one when it was all online for free, but I haven’t regretted paying for it when it showed up on Amazon. The series has two more entries which can also be helpful.

The Art and Craft of Fiction — This is more in-depth than the Self-Editing book and even talks about handling rejection. 😉

The Fire in Fiction — This one talks about how to revise you finished ms to make it shine. I’d get it for the chapter on micro tension alone.

2k to 10k — I haven’t quite managed to write 10k after reading this, but there were some useful tips here nonetheless.
