recommended reading

Whatever you may think of his bestselling novels, Stephen King turned out a must-read in his book On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft. Part autobiography, part textbook, On Writing makes the case for clear, concise and engaging storytelling, which should be the ultimate aim of every writer, from fiction authors to investigative journalists.

Hey Corinna! I'm so glad you mentioned this book. I'm not a fan of King's novels, but I love "On Writing." I also recommend "The Renegade Writer" by Linda Formichelli and Diana Burrell, and "Writing Down the Bones" by Natalie Goldberg.
