I wanted to add all the writing books I have on my shelf. As I post about them I will upload links here for you.
My favourite writers guide, with a fantastic range of emotions and descriptors for emotional body language. Part I of three.
The sister guide to the above book, an amazing guide to creating the perfect ‘negative’ trait.
The last in the three sibling books above, focusing on positive traits.
Great for creating villains, and characters with interesting psychologies.
The English version of the Chicago manual of style, and the first part in a set of three that an editor recommended to me.
Part III – The last in this set of three recommended reads.
An amazing 54 page guide by Nicola Morgan on how to write a synopsis.
