N. D. Wilson on Writing

Prediction: N. D. Wilson’s Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl is this generation’s Mere Christianity (C. S. Lewis) and the one before that’s Orthodoxy (G. K. Chesterton). Only those books may not deserve to be classed with this one. It’s that good. So do I think you should get it and read it? Definitely. Here’s a trailer for the book:

Wilson’s  own description of it is much better than any I might attempt, and check out this interesting FAQ he did on the book.

I also found a series of posts Wilson did on writing and devoured every word. Want help with your preaching, writing of essays or books, or attempts to describe things to others? Help yourself to these thoughts–they’re free, and they’ll probably convince you to buy his books. You’ll definitely want them if you’re trying to write a novel:

So You Wanna Be a Writer, Pt. 1 (Don’ts)

So You Wanna Be a Writer, Pt. 2 (For the Critics, These Pearls . . .)

So You Wanna Be a Writer, Pt. 3 (Prose for Body and Brain)

So You Wanna Be a Writer, Pt. 4 (An Exercise)

So You Wanna Be a Writer, Pt. 5 (Found Dialog)

So You Wanna Be a Writer, Pt. 6 (The Obstacle Course)

So You Wanna Be a Writer, Pt. 7 (Confidence and Betrayal)
