Writing Guides

Other than the dictionary and grammar and punctuation guides, the two most useful how-to books about fiction writing that I've read are Techniques of the Selling Writer by Dwight V. Swain and Trail and Error: A Key to the Secret of Writing and Selling by Jack Woodford. The rest have caused me more confusion than anything.

I don't think I have the talent to be a writer but because I enjoy reading so much, I am naturally interested in the nuts and bolts aspects of the craft.
Thanks for sharing!

I should probably look into that then.
