Writing 101: Word Loss

Stumbled across a book I’m super excited to share with you.

The Word-Loss Diet by Rayne Hall.

Not affiliated, just a fan.

Rayne Hall has also penned a number of other books offering help to aspiring writers and I encourage you to check them out. For a novice writer like myself, it is sometimes difficult to pinpoint exactly what is not working in my writing. Within five minutes of pulling this up on my Kindle reader, I was banging my head (and laughing).

I’m all for books that help and a big part of writing is learning how to write in a way that is clear, concise and draws the reader in. I’ve been doing a lot of reading lately. Mostly books in my genre but was very happy to run across this little gem of a book. Great big help for someone like me who loves a lot of story but never has words to spare.

If you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription from Amazon.com, you can read these books for free (well, the monthly subscription fee divided by the number of books you actually read in a month). If you don’t have a subscription, you can get the Kindle version for $3.00. (Rayne Hall’s writing help books run from $3-5). With Kindle apps available for almost everything, you don’t have to buy a Kindle to enjoy.


Another thing I want to mention is something I just discovered at my local library. The 3M Cloud Library. It’s an app that allows you to connect to your library’s digital book selection. Just like the Kindle app, I have this on all my devices. Sometimes the formatting is a little weird and you don’t have all the full capabilities as the Kindle, but it’s FREE and you can browse books in your pajamas.

I’m all for browsing books in pajamas! Writing them too. Happy Pajamas Giraffes! Belinda

P.S. If you want to put the 3M Cloud library on your Kindle, good luck. It took me an hour and several choice swear words before I could get it to take. I’m usually good with computers. Thankfully, lots of websites with detailed instructions. HG!
