Books about Writing – A genre unto itself

One year ago, along with rediscovering my love for writing I started a new activity, the study of writing craft. I saw that I could improve my writing in ways I had not thought about during my twenties when I mostly wrote poems, flash- and short-stories. The writing of my first, still under revision, novel called for more refined wordsmithing, so I started to read books about writing. This interest developed to creating two lists on Goodreads:

Books about Writing https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/31638675-leticia?shelf=about-writing

and

Helpful Books about Writing https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/31638675-leticia?shelf=helpful-books-about-writing

The first being a list of books I heard about which could be interesting, and the second a list of books I read and found helpful.

I also created a Facebook group for discussing this subject:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/995961867092275/

Needless to say that in this group I didn’t only give tips on interesting books, but also received great tips back.

So, if you are interested, jump in!
