Here’s a reblog from an agent. Don’t know why E.M. Forster’s Aspects of the Novel doesn’t make the list. I suppose one has to stop somewhere.
This is one of THE most important things writers can teach themselves. Put this one at the top of your list if you are revising right now.
Everyone knows (or should know!) this one. It’s the best guide out there, unsurprisingly, from one of the best in the biz. You’ve probably already taken some of this book in; there are quotes are everywhere on Twitter and Tumblr.
This book is so good for learning how to take your work from ‘good’ to ‘great.’ Who doesn’t want that? Written from the perspective of a literary agent, too.
