Novel aspirations!

Recently, Abi had a post about writing theses and such technical stuff. His post also had some nice pointers. These two wonderful editorials of Prof. Balaram in Current Science, published sometime back, about science writing in English and the writing style for technical documents (which are missing in Abi's post) are also worth giving a try.

However, in this post of mine, I wish to link to a few resources for non-technical writing - specifically, writing novels; the first one is a few excerpts from Write Away of Elizabeth George. The second one is everything you need to know about writing successfully - in ten minutes - by Stephen King. Finally, here is an old interview with PD James, where she tells you why writing a detective novel is a 'good apprenticeship' if you have aspirations of becoming a serious novelist.
