As a student of writing, I have read MANY, MANY writing books. I think a lot of them are very helpful. Usually, I just take small bits of knowledge from each one I peruse, but there is one book that is THE book. One book that is so dogeared and stained that I am almost embarrassed by how terribly its been treated, considering i love it so.

This book is amazing. It can inspire even the most blocked writer. It came to me at a point in my life where I was wondering if I could actually do this. That is write something that was longer than 10 pages :). I was living in NYC and working at a publisher as an assistant, and all I wanted to be doing was writing the books we were publishing. I wanted to, but I didn’t know if I could. This book helped me get there, by helping me filling countless notebooks and then finally write a book!
It’s always there when I need a writing pick-me-up. Come to think of it, I might just go read it right now…
