Revisiting Old Books

I’ve been cleaning and reorganizing my bookshelves. Some books are double parked so I thought I’d look through them and see if there’s any that I’ve outgrown and won’t read again.

While I have found a few that fit into that category…yes, I’m terrible about getting rid of stuff, I stumbled across some books that I’ll always consider keepers. I thought I’d share one with you today.

I’m not sure if it’s out of print now but I have a link to Amazon where various sellers have copies. It’s The Fiction Writer’s Silent Partner by Martin Roth. It has story ideas, fun facts in lots of categories like crime, sports and medicine. Name ideas and a chapter on creating characters. I could go on but it’s a great reference book to have on the shelf whether you’re a beginning writer or a seasoned one.
