Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll

Sometimes, we think writing an entire novel is an impossible act. But we need to believe in ourselves -- if we write one-page every single day, we will have a 365-page manuscript to work with at the end of the year. Nothing will ever seem impossible again!

Write Now! YPRL Short Story Competition 2012 by YPRL (Editor)
Write Now! YPRL Short Story Competition 2012 - YPRL

This is a collection of short stories compiled from the Yarra Plenty Regional Library 2012 competition for the best short story.  I read this because I intend to enter a short story of my own into this years competition and wanted to see what I was up against and what it took to win.

Write Your Book Now!: A Proven System to Start and FINISH the Book You've Always Wanted to Write! (Great Books for Writers)
Write Your Book Now!: A Proven System to Start and FINISH the Book You�ve Always Wanted to Write - Gene Perret **originally posted at www.bunnycates.com/reading **My Thoughts:I posted my initial reaction to this book on Goodreads, as soon as I finished it. "Excellent resource. I particularly found the chapters on organization & time management to be most informative. I have seen both Holly Black (author) and Charlie McDonnell (youtuber/writer) talk about and use the same techniques mentioned in this book. It was nice to see them a little more in depth than the 2 second glance I’d seen before.Great inspiration to newbies and authors who may have "stalled"."I still agree with that statement. I found the book “casually” written which made it easy to follow. It didn’t read like a “How To” book. It more read like a “Hey, this is how I get through it” letter. Its not a guide on grammar, formatting, or anything “technical”within the writing. It simply takes you step by step from getting your story idea out of your head and into a finished product. I read this in one afternoon, while taking notes on the side. At the end I felt empowered and like I could actually get my own book ideas finally written.In Conclusion:Excellent resource for new or up and coming authors. This book really does contain simple techniques to help take that book from initial idea to completed project.Mom Notes:none

WRITE NOW! How To Write That Novel--Today
WRITE NOW! (How To Write That Novel--Today) - Francine Saint Marie This was a free kindle book I perused when browsing writing books. For the price, it's a short, matter of fact guide designed to help people get started writing on a novel, but I'll admit it doesn't really go beyond basic, common-sense tips. I think it's helpful for those who want just general, point blank advice on getting started, but it really doesn't delve much into some of the aspects of an MS or the writing process to help flesh out a story, so I can't say it worked for me.
