TTT: Recent Writing Craft Books I’ve Added to my TBR


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

February 12: Recent Writing Craft Books I’ve Added to My TBR

Writing Craft is an area I’ve developed an interest in recently. I’m always looking for ways to improve my writing in all areas of my life and while I know that reading all of these aren’t going to instantly improve my work, I am hoping to learn tips that I can use to enhance my skills. I’m also looking forward to seeing writers write about their passion for their craft.

I’m starting to hate typing the words writing and craft. Those words are starting to look weird and misspelled due to redundancy, but they’re not misspelled. Words are weird.
