THE COMPLETE HANDBOOK OF NOVEL WRITING – This book does achieve a lot–in terms of providing advice from established authors–but any aspect that rises to the level ‘complete’ stops there. In The Complete Handbook of Novel Writing from Writer’s Digest, the topics covered pertain to the craft and business of writing, followed up by select interviews. While there is valuable information contained therein, the overall effect is a bit of a hodgepodge, because it’s not really a how-to book, as the title would have you believe. Think of it in terms of an anthology of author viewpoints, given many points of view, each one being vastly different. I don’t really find any of it systematic or method based. There are certainly gems here however, the title is misleading, the scope is overly ambitious.
RECLAIMED ROOM – Solis @wearewildewood will be featured alongside Lady Saphire at The Reclaimed Room @ReclaimedRoom in San Francisco on Amador St. Opening night reception February 6 at 6 PM. The show runs through mid-March. A short film by Soumyaa Behrens will be featured as part of the process. These still pics were snapped informally during the preparations for the documentary.
