On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft - Stephen King I've read several books about writing lately, and this was by far the best. I'd been told that it was the best book about writing, and as far as I know it's true! I love how Stephen King wrote both about his life and his writing. It really showed how life affects writing and how writing effects life. It felt a lot more personal and beautiful than a lot of writing books that just focus on the grammar/structure/etc. You can tell King really loves what he does and he describes the writing process perfectly. Highly recommended for any writer, of any age, of any genre. :] You need to read this!
