Zen in the Art of Writing

Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury

The celebrated author of Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles offers inspiration and insight on finding one's muse and channeling it onto the page.
Acclaimed writer of novels and short stories as well as screen- and stage plays, Ray Bradbury has established himself as one of the most legendary voices in science fiction and fantasy. In Zen in the Art of Writing, he shares how his unbridled passion for creating worlds made him a master of the craft.
Part memoir, part philosophical guide, the essays in this book teach the joy of writing. Rather than focusing on the mechanics of putting words together, Bradbury's zen is found in the celebration of storytelling that drove him to write every day. Bringing together eleven essays and a series of poems written with his own unique style and fervor, Zen in the Art of Writing is a must read for all prospective writers and Bradbury fans.

The Anti-Racist Writing Workshop

The Anti-Racist Writing Workshop: How to Decolonize the Creative Classroom by Felicia Rose Chavez

The Antiracist Writing Workshop is a call to create healthy, sustainable, and empowering artistic communities for a new millennium of writers. Inspired by June Jordan 's 1995 Poetry for the People, here is a blueprint for a 21st-century workshop model that protects and platforms writers of color. Instead of earmarking dusty anthologies, imagine workshop participants Skyping with contemporary writers of difference. Instead of tolerating bigoted criticism, imagine workshop participants moderating their own feedback sessions. Instead of yielding to the red-penned judgement of instructors, imagine workshop participants citing their own text in dialogue. The Antiracist Writing Workshop is essential reading for anyone looking to revolutionize the old workshop model into an enlightened, democratic counterculture.

The Art of Creative Writing

The Art of Creative Writing by Lajos Egri

Go beyond Stephen King's On Writing to master the fundamentals of great storytelling with this foundational guide that reveals the essential elements of what makes the best fiction. The Art of Creative Writing is a timeless testament to the power of dialogue and character development that is accessible for every level of writer from beginner to established author.
As in the bestselling The Art of Dramatic Writing, still considered one of the most essential books on playwriting more than 75 years after publication, the author outlines in detail his highly acclaimed Egri Method of Creative Writing and shows how to apply it to all fiction formats-novels, short stories, and screenplays.
Grounded in Egri's assertion that "Every type of creative writing depends upon the credibility of a character," here is concise, clear advice on the most important element of good writing: characterization. Step by step, Egri shows writers how to probe the secrets of human motivation to create flesh-and-blood characters who create suspense and conflict, and who grow emotionally under stress and strain.
As practical as it is inspiring, The Art of Creative Writing remains a timeless, illuminating guide that teaches every writer, and aspiring writer, how to create works that are both compelling and enduring.

Write Better

Write Better: A Lifelong Editor on Craft, Art, and Spirituality by Andrew T. Le Peau

Writing is not easy. But it can get better.
In this primer on nonfiction writing, Andrew Le Peau offers insights he has learned as a published author and an editor for over forty years, training, guiding, and cheering on hundreds of writers. Here are skills that writers can master-from finding strong openings and closings, to focusing on an audience, to creating a clear structure, to crafting a persuasive message.
With wide-ranging examples from fiction and nonfiction, Le Peau also demystifies aspects of art in writing such as creativity, tone, and metaphor. He considers strategies that can move writers toward fresher, more vital, and perhaps more beautiful expressions of the human condition.
One aspect of writing that rarely receives attention is who we are as writers and how writing itself changes us. Self-doubt, fear of criticism, downsides of success, questions of authority, and finding our voice are all a part of the exploration of our spirituality as writers found in these pages. Discover how the act of writing can affect our life in God.
Whether you're a veteran writer, an occasional practitioner, a publishing professional, or a student just starting to explore such skills, Le Peau's wit and wisdom can speed you on your way.

The Elements of Style

The Elements of Style by William Strunk, Jr.

"The Elements of Style", was first written by William Strunk in 1918 for private use at Cornell University, where Strunk was a professor of English, and republished by Harcourt in 1920 for the public. The concise handbook remains one of the most important and influential English writing style guides ever published. The original edition of the guide is organized into eight elementary rules of usage (such as using the active voice rather than the passive), ten elementary rules of composition (including the rule of omitting needless words), several matters of form, 49 commonly misused words and expressions, and 57 words often misspelled. The result is an efficient and pragmatic guide to help produce writing that is clear and understandable, in which every word is important. In 1957 while at "The New Yorker" writer E. B. White, who had studied under Strunk, called the guide "a forty-three-page summation of the case for cleanliness, accuracy, and brevity in the use of English." "The Elements of Style" remains an effective and helpful guide for anyone who wishes to write with greater order, simplicity, and sincerity.

Los 12 pilares clave para construir una novela

Los 12 Pillares Clave para Construir una Novela por C.S. Lakin

Los 12 pilares clave para construir una novela desata el misterio de cómo elaborar una historia sólida, para que puedas ir desde una idea hasta una novela completa en pasos fáciles de entender. La autora, C. S. Lakin, revisa y califica cada año más de 200 manuscritos, y años de experiencia le enseñaron que los escritores tienden a cometer los mismos errores fatales en sus manuscritos. Por más bien preparados que estén, fallan en asegurar que los cimientos de sus novelas estén sólidamente plantados.  Como esposa de un contratista constructor, Lakin sabe que un prerrequisito para una casa sólida es un sistema de cimientos a prueba de todo, y aplicando esta idea a la construcción de novelas, define doce pilares constitutivos de un cimiento inamovible, y los detalla uno por uno. Lakin define cuatro pilares angulares que deben edificarse de manera holística y que sirven de ancla fundacional para luego preparar los otros ocho pilares. Si se siguen sus instrucciones, se terminará con una estructura narrativa a prueba de fallas. El volumen incluye 12 listas de inspección, cada una con 12 preguntas acerca del pilar estudiado, de modo que si el lector satisface esos 144 criterios con éxito, estará listo para escribir su novela con la certeza de que estará sólidamente construida. Los 12 pilares clave para construir una novela forma parte de la serie "Herramientas para escritores", diseñada para auxiliar a los autores noveles en el oficio.
