NaNoWriMo must-have books.

NaNoWriMo is here again. There is an AMAZEBALLS book bundle currently available for only .99 through the 'Zon that if you haven't gotten any of these books, even if you have one or two of them, GET IT because the books alone are worth more than that.

The Indie Author Power Pack: How To Write, Publish, & Market Your Book

Other books I think are fantastic for writers:

Save the Cat

Save the Cat!® Strikes Back

Save the Cat Goes to the Movies

The Emotion Thesaurus: A Writer's Guide to Character Expression

The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers, 3rd Edition

Myth & the Movies: Discovering the Myth Structure of 50 Unforgettable Films

Why so many books about movies? Because writing is mental cinematography. If you can dissect movies, you can write better books. Because, as writers, we're taking the mental movies we see in our brain and trying to translate them onto the page for our readers.

I'll be posting more writing books over the next few days. This is a start, though, and these are books I have in my personal writing library.
