Writing and Creativity

Do you want to draft that novel or revise that story? One of the books on this list might help you see things in a new way.

Several Short Sentences About Writing

Klinkenborg, Verlyn

Klinkenborg writes, "Shape, form, structure, genre, the whole—these have a way of clarifying themselves when sentences become clear." This one made a lot of sense and was very useful.

A Swim in A Pond in the Rain

In Which Four Russians Give A Master Class on Writing, Reading, and Life

Saunders, George

This book encouraged me to try to write as well as I can.

The Artful Edit

Bell, Susan

Lots of strategies and advice.
