Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
"I really enjoyed this book. I thought Anne Lamott was witty and insightful. "
She Is the End by A.C. Weston

Neil Gaiman
“The best advice I can give on this is, once it's done, to put it away until you can read it with new eyes. When you're ready, pick it up and read it, as if you've never read it before. If there are things you aren't satisfied with as a reader, go in and fix them as a writer: that's revision."

[FAQ - Advice to Authors on Gaiman's website, http://www.neilgaiman.com]”

“There is a saying: Genius is perseverance. While genius does not consist entirely of editing, without editing it's pretty useless.”
Susan Bell, The Artful Edit: On the Practice of Editing Yourself

Steve Almond
“To look at the work of your peers, and learn how to explain with kindness and precision, the nature of their mistakes is, in fact, how you learn to diagnose your own work.”
Steve Almond

J.R. Tompkins
“I do so much writing. But so much of it never goes anywhere, never sees any light of day. I suppose that's like gardening in the basement. I don't publish so much of what I write. I just seem to plow it back into the soil of what I write after it, rewriting and rewriting, thinking that somehow it gets better after the fifty-second-time around. I need to learn to abandon my writing. To let go of it. Dispose of it, like tissue.”
J.R. Tompkins

V.S. Watson
“Sometimes a fresh perspective is all you need to get a second wind on the revision process. Try viewing your material on a different medium; it will shed a new light on the inconsistencies in the dark.”
V.S. Watson
