The 38 Most Common Fiction Writing Mistakes and How to Avoid Them is a solid writing reference book to have if you are serious about your craft. Beckham’s to the point style is easy to follow and highly motivational for both the beginner and the seasoned professional. Filled with positive affirmation and butt kicking motivation, Beckham navigates authors through the minefields of fiction and takes you successfully through to the other side to best writing practices.

Sample chapters include:

  • Don’t have things happen for no reason
  • Don’t forget stimulus and response
  • Don’t lecture your reader
  • Don’t mangle characters’ speech
  • Don’t be afraid to say “said”

Inexperienced authors often fall into one of these patterns and Beckham has the guidance to help them rework their material and free it from such structural catastrophes. Whether you are a windbag or a minimalist, Beckham’s professional insights to fiction writing are useful and highly relevant to the professional seeking publication and even more important a reading audience. This book is a great buy at full price!
