Helpful Links

The idea to share links with my readers came from my gal Kate. Every so often she will blog some useful links to help us in our writings. Seeing how much information was being shared I have decided to do the same. So this is my second go around with the links. Hope one or two are at least helpful.

Some books of interest that one can find in the library:

Creative Writing by Dianne Doubtfire

Jump Start: How to Write from Everyday Life by Robert Wolf

Breathing Life Into Your Characters by Rachel Ballon

The Writer’s Idea Book by Jack Heffron

A Writer’s Guide to Fiction by Elizabeth Lyon

Two books that I refer to a lot are:

Hooked: Write Fiction That Grabs Readers at Page One and Never Lets Them Go by Les Edgerton

On Writing by Stephen King

I will be upfront and admit my bias for Mr. King. Being from the same state, we are rather proud of him.  Hopefully one of these links will bring some ideas, tips or resources to you. Good luck with your writings.
