Review- 40 Tips on Creative Writing
This book, you guys. Oh my goodness. If you’re a writer, you need to read it. If you want to become a writer, you need to read it. If you do anything that involves creativity at all, you need to read it.
40 Tips on Creative Writing by Dan Buri is full of wisdom, humor, and advice for any writer, no matter their experience. It’s a short read that feels more like a collection of blog posts than a self-help book. The tips are open-ended and the book comes with a few lined pages at the end, where writers can keep notes on anything that occurs to them while reading.
Not convinced yet? Here are a few of my favorite tips:

And, the one I think I’m going to glue to every surface surrounding my computer:
It’s easy to doubt. Don’t be easy. Hold on to faith and hope.
That’s only four of forty tips, people. The rest are equally as insightful. This book is available in paperback and Kindle format! Click here to check it out on Amazon.
And, if you find yourself as dazzled by this book as I did, you can also check out Dan Buri’s work of fiction, Pieces Like Pottery.
