StoryBundle offers themed packages of Indie books for a reader-defined payment of as little as $4 (an average of $10). I’ve written about StoryBundle packages several times previously, including this introduction. Today StoryBundle has a package going specifically for writers.
As a writer, my whole job is centred around books. To make a good writer,we have to be a good reader too. Which comes very easily for most of us. We love words, so we read, and then we write, and read some more.
But today I had an epiphany, thanks to an online news article. Today, I began to rethink my love of books, and see them as – dare I suggest it – clutter! It’s a love that can go bad, just like any relationship, and one which is better off managed.
This week a blogging friend of mine, Bridget Whelan, offered me a review copy of her first writing craft ebook recently out. And best of all – I liked what I saw, and even better – you get to grab this for a limited time, for free.
I promised another book notes entry, and here it is – a doodlecast.
The Productive Writer by Sage Cohen.
A little while ago I took the most-often taken road of a writer – I decided to no longer review books. This is something quite difficult NOT to do. Writers, are by nature, readers firstly – most of us got into writing after a lifetime reading habit.
Once we accept and start working on writing as our domain, our career, we also strike the contrariness of reading as a writer, and no longer for pleasure.
