What I just finished reading

Wannabe a Writer? by Jane Wenham-Jones – (library book) Because I am working my way through pretty much all the writing guides in the library. Skim-read because there’s a lot of irrelevant stuff in there but some of the advice is actually useful (though it was published in 2007 so a lot is dated) and there’s a huge section at the back with advice from novelists, agents and editors.

What I’m reading now

The Writer’s Reader: A Guide to Writing Fiction & Poetry Edited by Brenda Walker – A lot of this is nearly incoherent pretentious literary wank, honestly. It turns out I’d already read the more useful articles for uni, anyway.

What I’m reading next

More writer’s guides, I’m sorry.
