What books on writing fiction have you benefited from?
I'm looking for a good book or two on how to write better fiction. What books have helped you the most?
I was heavily influenced by Stephen King's "On Writing". Even if you're not a fan of him as an author, it's a touching and hilarious mini-biography, sprinkled throughout with some great writing advice.
I also found the book "How Not to Write a Novel" to be a helpful window into the slush pile and the way an agent/publisher sees the world of writing.
"The Lie that Tells a Truth" by John Dufresne. It's very straightforward and easy to understand. It's biggest point is that all writing should reflect the human condition, what it is to be human and how people's emotions affect their actions. I had to read it for a writing workshop in college and I still re-read it when I need some motivation.
