This is always the danger inherent in a world with so many well-written books about the writing life.
Do you want a writing life or do you simply want to read about the writing lives of others? Today, you have ample opportunity to do both.
Of course, you know me, I am going to encourage you to have your own writing life. But I don’t think it will do you any harm to read these gems. In fact, I am sure that they will inspire you in all the ways that only they can. Why not keep them on your shelves at the ready for a rainy day?
These are some of my favorites. What are yours?
