Book Lists In the end, there’s no better way to learn how to write than by writing and reading, so here are some book lists that have helped me:

*I list these links because I’m often asked for them. However, they are what work for me, as a writer. Please take what you need and ignore the rest. As a young writer, starting out, I didn’t know how to do that. I took everyone’s advice and so by the time I was done, my stories didn’t sound like me and weren’t what I set out to write. As I wrote in this post on not giving up, in the end of the day, if you don’t write it, you can’t edit it. So get to it. Stop procrastinating. Stop looking for more advice. And enjoy the process. Happy Writing!
