Excellent book for novelists and memoirists
« on: November 29, 2022, 03:43:57 PM »
This isn't a link but a book that is a terrific resource for anyone writing a novel or memoir. I have an MFA, one traditionally published novel under my belt, and a fair number of published short pieces, but I found myself marking and highlighting passage after passage in this book. She explains things so clearly and walks you step-by-step through the process of writing and revising.

The book is called Seven Drafts: Self-Edit Like A Pro from Blank Page to Book, by Allison K. Williams. Fabulous! Cannot say enough good things about this resource.
