Sheila is reading Margaret Atwood on writing.

And we're all going to be better off for it.

Dan,

Speaking of books on writing, I strongly suspect I still have the copy of Natalie Goldberg's "Wild Mind" and/or "Writing Down The Bones" that you loaned me about 12 years ago (in case you were wondering where it got to).

[Sorry for the aside, everyone -- please continue a lively discussion of the actual topic of this post]

Another really wonderful book on writing is Stephen King's book On Writing. It might be my favorite craft book on the topic that's out there.

It may have been "Writing Down The Bones." I keep copies of that, "The Alchemist," and "Things Fall Apart" and just give them away willy-nilly, then head to Barnes and Noble to buy replacements.

Good exercises in there. I still have boxes of craft books from my undergraduate degree that I haven't finished, though the King book seems worthwhile. Anyone who wrote Shawshank is a master in my book.

Joel turned me on to James Joyce and there's this whole issue I uncovered of Ulysses and roman candles...
