A Book For Writers.

To my dearest friends and followers,

One thing that really helps me with writing and in this case, getting motivated to write, is reading.
I believe, one way to always be improving your writing is to read and never stop reading. Because when we read, we are learning. Obviously if we're reading educational or informational books, we're learning, but we're also learning when we read fiction. We're learning new words, writing structure, and style. Every writer has their own unique style and I think there's something to learn from each and every one of them. And as a bonus, maybe something you read sparked an idea which can be used as inspiration for your own work.

I've been reading a lot of fiction lately (which is typical of me) and I'm really excited to share with you the latest book I ordered!! It's not a typical book, and by typical, I mean it's not the typical kind of book I usually read, it's actually a book put together specifically to help someone with their writing.

I saw it advertised on Facebook. I usually try to stay away from ads like these, but this one really pulled me in and it seems legit. The ad was for a book titled The Essential Worldbuilding Blueprint and Workbook by Scribe Forge. Caught my attention almost immediately.
It's supposed to help you organize your ideas and build a world for your story (whether it's a fantasy world you're creating, paranormal romance, or sci-fi) by offering tips on worldbuilding, thinking about the location (geography, climate, etc.), the magic system, the technology, the religion and/or mythology and philosophy, the history, etc.. It also includes tons of worksheets allowing you to think about your answers and build the ideal world for your story.
Personally, I feel like I probably won't write my ideas in the spaces they provided, I'll probably get a separate notebook or journal to write in so I can use the Worldbuilding book for other projects in the future.

Since I've been having a bit of trouble writing The Death of Jack, I thought this would be really helpful for building the world for this project along with understanding how to build worlds in future projects.
My order hasn't arrived yet, as I just placed it yesterday, but I'm super excited to work through it!! I'll definitely write another post on this in the future to give you my thoughts and to let you know if the book is actually helpful. XD

The price isn't bad and the shipping is free anywhere in the USA, so if you want to check out the book, feel free to do so by clicking here.

Thank you so much for reading!!

Yours truly,
Me

Disclaimer: I feel like I should add that this isn't a sponsorship, I'm just excited about the Worldbuilding book and I wanted to share it with you lovely people in case anyone else would benefit from it. XD

Additional:
If you are interested in getting a copy of the Worldbuilding book, might I suggest getting one of my handmade fairy journals from my Ko-fi shop to use as your companion for writing down ideas?? The support means more to me than you know...

Also...
...you should totally take a look at my fantasy novel, The Story of Hollyhocks. XD
