Happy Weekend, WG2E-Land!
Here at The WG2E, we spend the majority of our time talking about the Business End of Indie Epublishing along with Ebook Marketing and Promotions and the Technological Elements of Epublishing.
You’ve heard all of us here on The WG2E Team mention a bunch that for any of this other stuff to work, you’ve got to have written great books.
To that end, I thought it might be helpful if we also began to share “how” we write great books!
Many of you have written me privately to ask about my actual process of writing a book.
First and foremost, I keep that process fluid. In other words, to keep my writing fresh, out-of-the-box and a whole lotta fun to work on, I am constantly mashing-up various tricks of the trade. What I do is take a plethora of fabulous techniques I’ve studied over the years and make ‘em my own.
In that regard then, I’ll take a little bit of X Approach and mix in some Y and Z, and make it all work for me and my muses. I don’t stay glued to any one approach in its entirety.
Here’s a list of the A-mazing Authors and Writing Teachers I’ve learned sooo much from (and I’ve broken them down into categories so you’ll have an easier time knowing who I rely on for what part of the writing process):
Writing Voice -
Point of View -
Pacing and Self-Editing -
Story Analysis -
Muse Therapy -
Story Development -
This list should get you started. And no matter where you are in the Epublishing Journey, you’ll pick up some fabulous tools of the trade from these wonderful Go-To Resources and Peeps!
It’s Your Turn, WG2E-Land: What and/or Who are Your Fave Go-To Writing Craft Resources?

***Note: I’ve bought all of these wonderful teachers’ books, taken their classes (online and/or in-person), and live by their class packets (most all of which you can get online).
