What fiction and non-fiction books are you reading?
I’m currently re-reading the Earthsea sequence by Ursula K. Le Guin as one of my wise guides.
Wise guides is an idea I came across in Heather Sellers’ latest book Chapter after Chapter where she suggest that you get together with 6 wise guides, 3 books like the book you want to write and three writing/coaching books to keep you on target with writing advice and motivational stuff.
My other wise guides that I’ll be re-reading before I start are:
The World of Null-A by A. E. Van Vogt,
Lord of Light by Roger Zelazny,
Writing the Novel by Lawrence Block,
The Weekend Novelist by Robert J. Ray (1st edition), and lastly
Fearless Creating by Eric Maisel.
In spite of what Heather Sellers says about only having six guides I going to include her two books Page after Page and Chapter after Chapter a pair of excellent writing advice books.
