Read from June 02 to December 16, 2011

This took me six months to finish. It's not a how-to book, but rather a collection of author interview snippets arranged by theme: beginnings, character, research, etc. Illuminating stuff, all told from the what-I-do perspective, rather than an instructional perspective. I read the whole thing with a notebookbeside me.
