Self-Editing for Fiction Writers

By Renni Browne and Dave King Buy this book, if you are a writer that is. I finally bought it after repeatedly seeing it recommended on writing and publishing blogs, so I thought I'd add my recommendation, too. Even though I've heard much of the included information before, I still found it extremely helpful. The examples are great, the explanations clear, and I especially liked their chapter on Show and Tell. The checklists at the end of each chapter are also great tools.

This is one of my favs. I've got an arsenal of about five and refer to them for different things. There is a lot of repetition, but sometimes I need to get hit over the head to realize it's really good stuff. I also like Stephen King's On Writing for the same reason. He's also a master at dialog, IMHO.
