One thing I’ve learned from writing this blog over the last three-and-a-half years is that we never “arrive.” The more you learn about the craft of writing, the more you realize how little you know.
I’m not satisfied with how much I’ve learned about the writing craft. Are you?
That’s why over the next few months, I’m going to be interviewing writers for their best tips, reading books about writing from great writers (e.g. Kurt Vonnegut’s Like Shaking Hands with God), and learning through other sources about the habits of great writers.
But to do that, I need your help.
Who Would You Like to Learn From?
I need your feedback on which writers you’d like to learn from.
Which living authors would you like me to try to interview?
Are there any authors who are deceased that you’d be interested in learning more about: their writing habits, how they learned the craft, and whatever advice they gave to other writers during their lifetimes?
Are there any writing books you haven’t read that you’d like to learn from?
The Writers I’d Like to Learn From Right Now
For example, here are some authors I’d love to learn from right now.
- Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Kingkiller Chronicle
- Herman Meliville, author of Moby Dick
- Mark Coker, author and founder of Smashwords
- Scott McEwan and Jim DeFelice, the ghostwriters/co-athors of American Sniper
- Frank Herbert, author of Dune
