45-46/100 Books: ON WRITING and BIRD BY BIRD

1056912543

ON WRITING:A MEMOIR OF THE CRAFT by Stephen King

BIRD BY BIRD: SOME INSTRUCTIONS FOR WRITING AND LIFE by Anne Lamott

My rating: 5/5 stars

These are both books on the craft of writing, so I thought I’d group them together in terms of reviewing. They aren’t novels, and I don’t normally read memoirs (pretty much the only memoirs I read are ones packaged with writing advice) so they fall out of the usual categories for my 100-books project.

But boy are they worth reading! If you’re a writer and you haven’t read these, I highly recommend them. They offer two very different perspectives, but each has a lot to teach even experienced writers. And because both these authors are master storytellers, they’re very entertaining as well as helpful!
