Writers Helping Writers

I love to read the work of other writers; and I love to dive into reference books on my craft. In the midst of a project, I may need a bit of a push, and my reference books can always be counted on to show me the way. Below are some of my favourites:

Stephen King – On Writing

Julia Cameron – The Artist’s Way

Natalie Goldberg – Writing Down the Bones

Francis Flaherty – The Elements of Story (Field Notes on Nonfiction Writing)

Lynne Truss – Eats, Shoots and Leaves

Betsy Lerner – The Forest for the Trees

Charles Harrington Elster – The Accidents of Style

These are only a few of the titles lingering on the bookshelf in my writing room. I love that they are readily available to me when I hit a roadblock or need assistance on a grammatical query. These writers help me discover my own method through their experience. Writers need the support and advice of other writers. We depend on one another to learn about the delicate intricacies of our craft.
