On the Craft of Writing
What are, in your opinion, must read books on the craft of writing? Is there any particular reason why you would recommend them? Please share... Here are a couple of good ones in my opinion: On Writing – Stephen King If you haven’t read it already, I heartily recommend it. I resisted it for a long time, because I am not really a Stephen King fan, but finally I gave in to general consensus and read it. While you won’t learn many new things on actual craft of writing, his inspiring story is enough to make it a worthwhile read. Characters, Viewpoints and Emotions – Nancy Kress I bought this because it was recommended as a resource on the website of one of my most favourite authors. Another good, and very useful read.
