Okay, today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme was “Scariest-Looking Book Covers,” and since I generally don’t purchase (or read) those, I thought I’d do my own thing today!
Therefore, I present to you some of my favorite books on writing:
Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott | The ultimate book about the writing life!
The Writing Life by Annie Dillard | So much yes.
Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg | Even if you don’t agree with her Zen teachings, you have much to learn from her methods: “Ten minutes. Go.” It’s gotten me through many writing slumps!
A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller | How to not just write but live a great story.
Wild Mind & Thunder and Lightning (and really anything writing-related) by Natalie Goldberg | More deliciousness.
Zen in the Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury
Walking on Water by Madeleine L’Engel | Reflections on faith and art
