A WRITERíS BOOKSHELF

 

 

These are some books that I have found helpful on my journey as a writer:

 

 

The Artistís Way, by Julia Cameron.  This book is indispensable for writers and artists of any sort.   I tried to ignore this book for years, but it kept finding me.  I return to it again and again for inspiration.

 

Writing Down the Bones and Wild Mind, both by Natalie Goldberg.  No books are  better for getting ink on the page.  Natalie is the ultimate writing coach.  Also, Thunder and Lightning:  Cracking Open the Writerís Craft.

 

Fearless Creating, by Eric Maisel.  This book helps to exorcise those writing demons and get you working.  Itís a wonderful book for all writers and artists.  I canít recommend it highly enough. 

 

The Art of Creative Writing and The Art of Dramatic Writing, by Lajos Egri.

 

Itís a Bunny Eat Bunny World, by Olga Litowinsky.  This book has some good practical advice for aspiring childrenís authors.

 

Idiotís Guide to Writing Childrenís Books.  Lots of good info here.

 

Worlds of Childhood:  The Art and Craft of Writing for Children, edited by William Zinsser.

 

How to Promote Your Childrenís Book, by Evelyn Gallardo.  This book tells you what to do after youíve been published.  Extremely useful.
