Like any writer I have a bunch of craft books on my bookshelf and kindle. Some I haven’t yet opened *blush*. Not that I bought them thinking they wouldn’t be useful and it’s not that I no longer want to read them. I do. It’s just that time taken reading a craft book could be spent writing. But I think I need to start reading them and flushing out those that I don’t want to keep.
I’m slowly weeding out craft books I rarely refer to, or didn’t find helpful, or are no longer relevant to the direction my writing is taking me (mostly to save my groaning bookshelf!). I promised myself no-more-craft-books. But somehow I still find myself buying new ones (I say as I push the craft book that arrived last week under some papers).
All I want in the way of craft books are just 2 or 3 that resonate with me. That I can easily apply to my writing. That will move my writing forward. That I enjoyed reading.
Talking about my keeper-craft books might be a post for the future. What are your keeper-craft books?
