You gotta read to write!

I am pooped! There's so much to do before Thanksgiving break that I've been to frazzled to post anything new.

Lately, I've been wandering around the library, picking up writing books to read so I can improve my craft. (In fact, I've been bothered lately because although I know my style, I don't know what to call it. So, I got a book called Fiction Dictionary. I plan on readnig it like a novel.)

I have a very small lull in my schedule, so I'm going to give you a list of the writing books I've found:

The Fiction Dictionary by Laurie Henry

On Writing by Stephen King

The Plot Thickens by Noah Lukeman

The Elements of Style by Strunk and White

Now Write! (Writing exercises from writers and teachers of writing.)
