Favorite Books on Writing

These books have been distilled down from a much larger collection. The book that got me started was Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way and the angst-busting practice of morning pages. The most surprising find was Ivana Chubbuck’s The Power of The Actor. Yes, the book works for writing so well I’m almost afraid to share.
