bookshelves: non-fiction
Recommended for: writers who need encouragement
Read in September, 2007

I skimmed over a good third of this book, because it didn't quite apply to me. Still, David Gates recommended that I read it and read it I did. If you write fiction, pick it up sometime. If you write nonfiction I'd keep it next to your dictionary. This is the 30th anniversary edition and there's a reason why it's been around for so long.
