Stephen King's On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
Lawrence Blocks' Telling Lies for Fun & Profit was the book that convinced me that I should stop trying to write short stories when what I really wanted to write was a novel. Like Stephen King's book above, this is a definite case of "learn from the master." Great stuff.
Rotten Reviews & Rejections - Because there are days when it simply helps to know that you're not alone. Even the great writers faced rejection (and sometimes ridicule).
And just for fun, because writing is fun, and sometimes we take ourselves too seriously. Guaranteed to make you smile, even if you received a rejection recently. Snoopy is an outrageous and courageous writer. He says and does the things that all of us wish we could do.
Enjoy reading...and writing!
