The Best 4 Books on Writing I’ve Ever Read

Writing is considered to be pretty hard by most people. The writer needs to be completely focused and experienced enough in order to know how to combine the right words together in order to create an interesting outcome. Not only that, but writing is also one of those professions where no one can teach you how to excel; you have to work hard by yourself. If you’re looking for some help and guidance on this topic, here are 4 of the best books I’ve read on writing that will make you fall in love with writing all over again. The

On My Shelf (47)

On My Shelf highlights books I’ve acquired and read in the past week, as well as a little about what I’m writing, and other blog worthy news.

Most Wanted (67)

What? Avatar: the Last Airbender: the Promise part 1 Why? I’ve been a huge fan of ATLA since the beginning, and have been dying to know what happened to everyone after the series ended.

Doppelgängers (16)

Doppelgängers is back! I’m changing things up a bit with this feature. Book covers will still battle it out to the death, and you’ll still get to vote for your favorites. The difference is, I’ll be saving my thoughts on the covers until the voting is over. So, here are this week’s covers. I’ll post my thoughts on them next week when I reveal the next set of Doppelgängers. Dreaming Awake vs. Enchanted Last week’s winner: the three-way match-up between Dragonswood, Carrier of the Mark, and The Mind Readers ended in a two-way tie between Dragonswood and Carrier of the Mark.
