This book is a good source of insight on the methods of various authors. Each writer featured was given the same questionnaire and the answers are organized by each "phase" of the writing process. Sure, some of the writers came off as super-pretentious and others as very down-to-earth (Stephen King has to be one of the most straightforward and coolest people out there, in my opinion), but overall it was interesting and inspirational to find out what makes some of these people tick. Is this a how-to guide on writing a novel? No. But it IS some validation that perhaps your desire to write a novel doesn't make you crazy.
