For today’s post I would like to throw a question out to all of my writer friends:
Of all the writing how-to books that you’ve read or own, which one is your favorite? (Yes, you can pick two or three, I know it’s hard to choose sometimes!) My favorite is Stephen King’s On Writing. Not only do I love the advice he gives in the book, but also the childhood stories he tells. It’s part memoir, part advice on the craft of writing, making it an entertaining and educational read.
My other favorite (because I can’t pick just one) is Anne Lamott’s bird by bird. A few months ago I posted about my love for this book here. bird by bird just made sense to me and helped me get over the often immobilizing fear of writing an entire novel.
So what’s your favorite? Do tell – I’d love to find some more good writing books to add to my shelf!
