B is for Books

Writer's Library:

Some of you may know that reading books about writing is part of how I learn how to be a better writer. With that in mind, today’s post focuses on some of the writing books in my library.

On Writing by Steven King -  4 out of 5 stars
Biographies, Autobiographies, and memoirs are among my favorite genres. This book combines memoir with craft all in King’s signature style.

Writing Great Books for Young Adults by Regina Brooks – 4 out of 5 stars
Offers great techniques and insight into plot and character.

Writing Fiction for Dummies -  2 out of 5 stars
This book is geared for the beginning writer.

Writing and Selling the Young Adult Novel by K L Going - read too long ago to rate.

Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott on the shelf. Haven't read yet.

Writing the Breakout Novel by Donald Maass on the shelf. Haven't read yet.


  1. I found you on the A-Z challenge

  2. Hi Michelle
    Stephen King "On Writing" is on my shelf & next on my reading list. I agree that reading about writing helps although sometimes after hearing lots of writerly advice, my writing becomes so "self-conscious" I can't get anything out!
    Nice to have met you through the challenge.

  3. I have Stephen King's "On Writing" in my library too. I was told by someone that it is a "must have" for all authors. Who am I to argue?

    Good post for the A-Z Challenge.
