A lot of writers don't realize how much they can learn from screenwriting. Great book recommendations. I've already requested them from the library.

The only thing I would add to the mix is television writing. I had no formal fiction writing, but I learned a ton from reading television writer Jane Espenson's excellent blog, where she deconstructs plot, humor, etc. She's not currently posting, but the archives are another gold mine.

Thanks for an excellent blog post!

Thanks Angela. very insightful. I remember staring into the abyss and coming away terrified. Thankfully I am too stubborn to quit, so I just kept plugging away at it. Reading how to write books helped, but getting honest crits was the best. And you are right about movies. Sometimes they unlock my mind like nothing else. As always, thank you for sharing your wisdom.

Great tips Angela. I so agree with them all. Amazing how much being part of a critique group, reading, and practicing by writing can improve your writing.
