| E D I T O R R E C O M M E N D E D |
|Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott|
A funny, unpretentious, sympathetic look at the writing life. The section on allowing yourself to write a crappy rough draft (so you can get it done in the first place) is worth the price of the book alone.
|How to Write Descriptions of Eyes and Faces|
by Val Kovalin, your BellaOnline editor for the Fiction Writing site. Learn to describe the appearance of the eyes, actions involving the eyes, and how to describe eyelids, eyebrows, and eyelashes. More than 2,000 words explaining 82 color names to assign to eyes. Facial shapes, forehead, ears, cheekbones, nose, lips, chin, and facial hair. Learn how the face shows different emotions, and more!
|The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara|
Best historical novel ever, and I donīt even like most historical novels. Epic and unforgettably intense! Among other things, reading this will teach you how to hook your readers through writing strong character emotion.
