"Write Like the Masters" by William Cane

For a different kind of writing advice book, try "Write Like the Masters" by William Cane.

Mr. Cane reveals some of the writing secrets of 21 great writers. Would you like to know what Stephen King did not write about in his book "On Writing?" Would you like to know what you can learn about writing from a dark writer like Kafka? How about Edgar Rice Burroughs, Margaret Mitchell, George Orwell, Charles Dickens? All of these writers were experts at certain aspects of writing, much of which can apply to almost any kind of writing. The very first writer Cane discusses, Honore De Balzac, immediately gave me ideas on how to improve my writing. There is something you can learn from virtually every one of the 21 writers he discusses. "Write Like the Masters" is a book that will open your mind to new and different techniques. You'll be pleased by what you learn.

"Write Like the Masters" is available on Amazon.com (see my slideshow).

I'm starting to "go back" and read the masters. I agree that this is the way we can really learn how to write!
