Books on Writing

My number one book for writers, and this opinion has not changed despite the volume of books I read, is:

1. Self Editing for Fiction Writers. Renni Browne and Dave King.

Others, in no particular order, are:

2. Writing Down The Bones. Freeing The Writer Within. Natalie Goldberg.

3. How to Write a Damn Good Novel. James N. Frey.

4. Techniques of the Selling Writer. Dwight V. Swain.

5. Bird by Bird. Anne Lamott. An inspirational book.

6. The Forest for the Trees. An Editor’s Advice to Writers. Betsy Lerner.

7. The Artist’s Way. Julia Cameron.

8. The Flip Dictionary. Barbara Ann Kipfer. A modern Roget’s thesaurus.

And how could I omit On Writing, Stephen King’s terrific little memoir (and a great inspiration)?
