New Year, New Books

Mastering the Craft with Stephen Wilbers has been a blast. And we're going to keep our copies handy for future reference. But with a new year upon us, we have a new party plan (ahem, course of study.)

Instead of one book for the year, we will be discussing 12 (or more) different books. Some will be on craft, some on creativity, a few on the business side of writing and even a cookbook (crock-pot meals, of course, to help writers find a little more writing time in the day!) All three of us will chime in throughout the month. Watch for guest posts and giveaways, too. We're turning the blog into an online book club for writers. So grab your kindle (or fav ereader of choice) and a virtual comfy chair and check out the line-up.

The books*:

January: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up--The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing/Marie Kondo 

February: Bird by Bird/Lamott

March: Hooked: Write Fiction that Grabs Readers at Page One & Never Lets Them Go/Les Edgerton

April: Writing Your Novel From the Middle/James Scott Bell

May: The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles/S. Pressfield and S. Coyne

June: Handling the Truth: On the Writing of Memoir/Beth Kephart

July: The Eureka Factor: Aha Moments, Creative Insight, and the Brain/J. Kounios and M. Beeman

August: The Creative Habit/Twyla Tharp

September: No Plot? No Problem/Chris Baty

October: Crockpot Cookbook

November: The Artist Way/Julia Cameron

December: Scene & Structure/ Jack M. Bickham
