Why this hot-off-the-press special issue from The Writer is a fave of mine:

  • Slick cover (eye candy!)
  • Topics helpful to both seasoned and newbie writers
  • Such as: grammar (which would’ve come in handy for yesterday’s post when I apparently left a participle dangling…ouch), strategies to bring fiction and non-fiction to life, 7 essential elements to creating suspense, 8 methods to capture a child’s view of the world
  • And my favorite so far: 25 ways to tighten, clarify and energize your writing

I pre-ordered my copy (free shipping!) but I’m sure you’ll be able to find this at your local Barnes & Noble as well. Enjoy!
