Great book for aspiring novelists

Original post made by Danny, Crescent Park, on Apr 6, 2007

One of my favorite books -- and a tremendous tool for any aspiring novelists out there -- is "On Writing" by Stephen King. The literary legend not only offers a fascinating glimpse into his own rise as a best-selling author, but also offers the tools good writers need to complete their works. It's a valuable and excellent read.

Thanks for the recommendation! Also, Bird By Bird, by Anne Lamott, which is highly motivating and shows the reader to how to make progress in writing without "finding the time" to write. Wonderful stuff.

Thanks for the suggestion A.J. I've been looking for a book like that as well.
