I declared 2014 the year to learn about writing and committed to quite the list of non-fiction (which I only can read in small doses). How have I done so far? I’ve read a grand total of two.
Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art — Madeleine L’Engle
Of course, I re-read large portions of Second Sight and Novel Metamorphosis for the Novel Revision class I taught in the spring. I also raced through The War of Art , which didn’t make the list back in January. Same with Advanced Plotting, which I also forgot to add. And I’ve read lots and lots of fiction, which I can’t help but learn from, (two recent titles I picked up to study character — The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian and Okay for Now — completely knocked my socks off). As for my list, I’m a little behind. It’s time to jump back in!
Any books on writing you’re planning to read this year?
