- With the closing of the Christian Writers Guild, owner Jerry Jenkins (bestselling author of The Matheny Manifesto and the Left Behind series) looked for a way to continue to build up the pool of Christian writers with instruction. The result? Instruction from the master on his blog. Monday he blogged on "11 Best Books on Writing I've Ever Read" -- books that every serious writer should read, re-read, and have on their bookshelf. In May guest blogger Stephen King instructed writers about "Everything You Need to Know about Writing Successfully - in Ten Minutes."
- Author Kristen Lamb (Rise of the Machines: Human Authors in a Digital World, which I HIGHLY recommend) has posted several blogs about the importance of POV (Point of View). The two on deep POV are must-reads for every serious writer. Click here to read her posts.
- Marsha Hubler has also been posting excellent blogs on the craft of writing. Her most recent is "How to Turn Off Your Readers" - something you DON'T want to do.
Links to these blogs, as well as other blogs of interest to writers, are listed in the right margin of this page.
Be a thirsty, hungry student of writing and learn all you can about the craft. Then apply it. Your readers will thank you.
