Wow, writing. I’ve been so slammed with the Day Job and other obligations I haven’t done very much of it the last few days. I gotta fix that. I’m starting by once again posting to the blog. 🙂 (And yes, I have had a little time to play BattleTech, which I still enjoy.)
StoryBundle has a deal for the next week for eBooks all about writing. It’s curated by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, who really is an expert on the subject both as a massively prolific and successful author, but also as an instructor. I have only read one of the books in the series – Writing a Novel in Five Days While Traveling by Dean Wesley Smith. I’m a fan of DWS, and have enjoyed his nonfiction, fiction, and video lectures (I’m looking forward to the one on Heinlein’s Rules included in this bundle), this particular book wasn’t quite so useful to me. It was interesting to learn what kind of work habits and approach this demanded, but it’s not something I could take advantage of considering my current stage of development.
I don’t know about Steven Barnes ‘ creative visualization MP3s, but it’s frickin’ Steven Barnes. If he thinks it works, I’ll give it a shot. I’m most interested in the “Creating Your Author Brand,” the “Heinlein’s Rules” lectures, and “Secrets to Effective Author Marketing.”
If writing is your thing, it’s worth checking out to see if enough of the included books / programs make it worth the price of the bundle.
