Reading about Writing – Index


I have posted briefly before about books on screenwriting but I thought it might be interesting to delve further into some of the books on my shelf.

The worth of said books is a question that is posed regularly on forums by writers and the debate rages long and hard. I don’t intend to fuel the debate as to whether reading about writing is a good or a bad thing – I think everyone has to make their own mind up – but I just thought it might be helpful to share my thoughts on these books (and aspects of them that I found useful or interesting) to help you decide whether YOU should read them; everyone is different and we all have different ways of learning.

These aren’t “reviews” as such, and I won’t be telling you whether you should or shouldn’t buy a particular book.

It would be great to hear from you if you have found a particular book, or aspect of a book, helpful in developing your writing process/technique or even if you have found something that was not so helpful. But please don’t comment purely to say something is “rubbish”.
