Crafting Novels & Short Stories
from the Editors of Writer’s Digest
As with most things that come from Writer’s Digest, this book is an excellent resource for writers. It isn’t a quick guide, though. You’ll definitely want to commit some time to going through it thoroughly. In fact, I would treat this one more like a textbook (though it isn’t dry like a textbook). Grab some highlighters, sticky notes and a notepad so you can really study it.
Crafting Novels & Short Stories covers everything from character development to description and word choice. What I found fun, too, were the little challenges sprinkled throughout. It helps to be able to put some of the lessons into practice.
