BOOK RECOMMENDS

Description by Monica Woods

This is part of the Elements of Fiction Writing series, which I used a lot as a beginner. I highly recommend this series to improve your craft. This particular book is great for learning more about writing all types of descriptions.

Euphonics for Writers by Rayne Hall

Another book in a really great series for beginners and intermediates alike called Writer's Craft. There are 34 books in the series, and this particular book offers a unique lesson in using certain word sounds to invoke certain emotions. For example, did you know that you can use "ee" words to enhance creepy scenes, and words with "L' for sensual scenes? Really interesting word science.
