  1. Stephen King’s On Writing: A Memoir on the Craft is excellent. I consider it mandatory reading regardless of the type of writing you do because it makes you think in a way that will improve your skills (and just maybe your life).

  7. Make space on the shelf for Arthur Plotnik. His books are as entertaining and satisfying as they are useful. My faves: “Spunk & Bite: A Writer’s Guide to Bold, Contemporary Style” and “Better than Great: A Plenitudinous Compendium of Wallopingly Fresh Superlatives.”
