My one regret, I read this after I'd written my first book, she would have saved me so much time.
I have made my career out of writing for others, but now I want to write for myself.
I have purchased SO MANY books on how to write fiction. Books like:
+ How To Write A Damn Good Novel
+ Techniques Of The Selling Writer
+ On Writing
But what I really liked about this book was how practical it was. I have pages of notes that I took from reading this of things that I can try tonight when I sit down to write again - things I am excited to try.
I am very grateful for any and all information that I learn that will make me a better writer and this book is full of just such information.

Dear Anne: Love Letters from Nam
As some of you might know I'm attempting to do JuNoWriMo. I hadn't planned on doing this but it been a while since I put out the effort for NaNoWriMo and I missed writing like that. Like what? You may ask. Like a crazy idiot who'd just vomits words. When ideas fly around your head and make you crazy. When plot-bunnies plot to kill you. Yeah, I'm not sure why I'm doing it either. And with two days of thunderstorms where the electricity goes out, I'm two days behind now. But I think I could make up two days.
I did one novel where I outlined the socks out of it long before I started writing in November. That book turned out to be the very best book I've written so far. So as much as I enjoy the creativity of seat-of-your-pants writing I like to have a bit of a plan as I go into it. Then if some crazy ideas take hold of me I know how to find my way back to the plan.
Tara Maya's 30 Day Novel works using outlines and storyboards and other great ideas. Some of these ideas I have tried before and they didn't work quite so well as I would've wanted. But she spells out the process in a way that I can understand and I may institute some of these ideas in my plans, maybe for November's novel. It's kind of too late for this one. Although if I get too far behind for JuNoWriMo, I may institute some of these ideas for Camp Nano in July.
This is a quick read and the author keeps it moving along. I highly recommend it to all writers to glean what they can from it.
