Writing Craft Books

By Elizabeth Swartz

While we are still on our reading habits, let’s talk about books we read about writing. On Writing by Stephen King is wonderful for inspiration and common sense.

The Writer’s Guide to Crafting Stories for Children  by Nancy Lamb is a classic that I keep next to the desk and refer to often when I’m stuck.

Anyone who wants to get better at something reads and studies it. My son reads books about building furniture and made me a beautiful dining room table.

It’s not like any of us have tons of time on our hands, but it doesn’t take long to read a chapter now and then and let it just percolate in the back of your mind.

What are your favorite how-to writing books?

    Real Revision by Kate Messner was exceptional. I can’t wait to meet her at the NY Conference coming up later this month, and tell her just how helpful it was to me!
