A few weeks ago, I was listening to the podcast, The Moment with Brian Koppelman, with special guest Seth Godin. Brian was the screenwriter of the movie, Rounders, and the Showtime series, Billions. During the podcast, Brian named his two favorite books on writing, which were, Hemingway On Writing, and Stephen King’s, On Writing. After listening to the podcast, I requested both books from the library. Last week, I finished, Hemingway On Writing. It was the perfect book to read for someone who’s been struggling to write. It’s one of those books that I will eventually add to my library because I can imagine reading it again and again. It’s that good. It’s not the stereotypical Hemingway we’ve all heard before. It’s the man in his own words. Talking about his work, his process, how he views over writers, writing for a living, and how to become a writer. It’s fascinating, and motivating, and it’s helped spurn me back into my daily blog post habit. If you’re interested in writing, which should be everyone, then this is a book you need to read about ten times.
I’ve read a few books in the past month that I haven’t written about on this blog. I’ll be posting them in the coming weeks and updating my online reading list.
I’m currently reading a few books at the same time:
