Today on my writing blog, Healing by Writing, I have posted a review of an extraordinary book on writing compelling description. If you have thought about writing or are a writer, I hope you’ll take the time to read the full review.
In 2006, as a support platform for her forthcoming book, The Heart and Craft of Lifestory Writing, Sharon Lippincott launched her blog titled The Heart and Craft of Life Writing. Sharon’s blog and her book have both been successful in teaching other writers, providing author interviews, and covering all aspects of writing. Thousands have cybernetically and in real-time sat at the feet of one of the best writing teachers of today.
Now, some 550 plus posts later, Sharon, has brought to her readers yet another book, The Heart and Craft of Writing Compelling Description: Selected Blog Posts From The Heart and Craft of Life Writing. A compilation of Sharon’s best blog posts on descriptive writing, most of which — no almost all of which — I have read, and still they continue to resonate with me on reading them again. I found myself highlighting once more new passages which will improve my writing.
