Resource Roundup

There are several books I use a LOT when I find myself stuck. Three are by writing master Sol Stein: Stein On Writing: A Master Editor of Some of the Most Successful Writers of Our Century Shares His Craft Techniques and Strategies; How to Grow a Novel: The Most Common Mistakes Writers Make and How to Overcome Them; and Sol Stein's Reference Book for Writers: Part 1: Writing, Part 2: Publishing. All three are invaulable treasure troves of great information.

Another one (and trust me on the title) is Telling Lies for Fun & Profit by Lawrence Block and Sue Grafton. Howlingly funny and packed with good info, both of these writers are masters of the suspense/mystery genre, and most of the articles are reprints of Block's work he did years ago for Witers Digest.

  1. I'm going to have to find "Telling Lies for Fun and Profit." I love that title!

  2. I think I may have read Lawrence Block's book. Anyway, I know I read one of his books on the craft and enjoyed it.
