*** 4 Cranky Stars ***About Writing is a guide for aspiring writers on how to write a story and turn it into a manuscript ready for submission. It’s full of tips and hints as well as examples on the “how-to” and “what-not-to-do” steps into the world of literature.I am a fairly new author with only a couple of books under my belt. Honestly speaking if I had read this guide prior to writing and completing my very first book, I would have given up for the sheer fear of not meeting the gui [...]
“There are probably as many ways to abuse the language as there are words in it. Learn your craft. Please.” Suz deMello, in her recently released book About Writing: Your Essential Writing Manual, including Plotting and Planning and Write This, Not That! , won me over with that bold statement. As a former college English professor and indie author who is constantly asked for free advice from newbie writers, I myself tend to tell aspiring authors to invest in an editor*. Quite often, (in “s [...]
About Writing is just thatA no nonsense book about how to write and how to do it well. I found her style to be easy to understand. I especially found her explanation on POV's to be illuminating as I trip in blissful ignorance through my writing only to suffer the editors wrath time and again.I will recommend About Writing to my new, and old, author friends.
About Writing by Suz deMello is a small, but powerful book for beginners and experienced writers alike. This little book is an excellent reference to remind all authors of the goals of becoming a better author. I love that Ms. deMello started with this quote, “There are three rules to writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.” – Somerset Maugham. Is this not the truth? How many times have we endeavored to learn the correct way to write, and then we pick up a best seller a [...]
I was given this book as an ARC for an honest review. Suz deMello wrote a fantastic primer for the beginning writer, but it should not be overlooked by the more experienced. It’s nice to have a go-to guide to touch on the things easily forgotten. She touches on everything from character arc to plot points. This is an excellent book to have in your craft library.
About Writing is a powerful book for beginners and experienced writers. It's an excellent reference and I'm sure I'll be flipping through the pages more as I visit future manuscripts myself. I would advise writers to give this a read, even if you have many titles under your belt.
Advice on writing is like salt—too much or too little spoils the soup. Without adequate guidance, a novice writer, even experienced writers, risk boring their readers or disgusting them with simple but excruciating mistakes. Like the use of ‘very’ – a useless word that creeps in when you’re not looking. Writing tired? Writing lazy? Go back to your work in progress and perform a search and destroy mission on ‘very.’The other side of the coin is advice that undermines a writer’s co [...]
It's my book so I obviously love it! It's one of the best things I've ever done other than adopt a shelter dog :)
