I would like to start writing fiction professionally but I have zero experience. I love to learn and consider myself to be a very knowledgeable individual. I have the time and the drive and am ready to seriously pursue a career in writing. I am not new to writing or methodically delivering information to a target audience. The problem is all of it is non-fiction based experience. I am unsure on how to approach learning to write. I am not an avid fiction reader and therefore don't really have any hard-coded writing style or methodolgy to mimic based on observation or familiarity. So far I plan to start writing 1,000 words a day of fiction for the practice. But other than that, I'm very conflicted on how to start. In the past I have always been able to learn the skills I need from books. However, the more I research books about writing the less I thinking writing is something that can be taught. At least in the traditional sense. My biggest worry is that in trying to learn writing I may be teaching myself bad habits or filling my head with incorrect information. I am looking for advice on how to move forward with an education. What is essential reading? If not direct book recommendations, what types of books on writing should I consider solid teaching material?
