On Writing by Stephen King

This is actually the second time I’ve found On Writing at a thrift store, but I was a more generous person back then and gave the coveted copy to my then-roommate and always-best friend, who had been looking for a copy EVERYWHERE. And it all works out in the wash, because the first copy I found was hardcover, and I prefer trade paperback by miles.

As a sometimes-writer, I’m equally (which is to say, barely) sometimes-into-reading-books-about-writing. There are a couple I swear by, including Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott and, perhaps surprisingly,  How To Write Science Fiction and Fantasy by Orson Scott Card, which my father found at a library discard sale and gave to me when I was probably twelve years old and turned out to be weirdly formative.
