Review: Master Lists for Writers by Bryn Donovan
Since I was in middle school, I always had this idea that I was going to finish a book. Unfortunately, for me it isn’t as easy as I hope. Writing is hard. And I’m always on the lookout for a book that will help me with the writing process.
Master Lists for Writers is that truly a master list of whatever you need in the writing process. If I’m being honest, I spend more time searching for resources than I actually do writing. This book has almost everything you need. There are list about how to describe facial expressions. List about 100 potentially interesting settings for a scenes. There is a section on names from Viking-era Scandinavia. It’s a very broad and useful book. This is most have book for any writer. Especially those who are beginners.
This isn’t not a book that you read once and you’re done with it. You’re able to continue to read this book for everything work that you may be working on. There truly isn’t a limit.
One of my favorite things about this book is that at the end there is a section called “10 Reasons Why You Should Write that Story.” It’s motivational. And in times, when a writer is finally down or unmotivated, I think it’s pretty cool that they can turn to those couple of pages and get the motivation they need.
Master Lists for Writers is a resourceful book, which I will continue to read.
