Writing Books Written by Women

Natalie Goldberg. How could I have forgotten Natalie Goldberg? Wild Mind. Writing Down the Bones. And I found on my goodreads list, If You Want to Write: A Book about Art, Independence and Spirit, by Brenda Ueland. I need to read it again, because although I raved about it, I do not remember it. Brain fade. Power save. I'm going to find it right now, and buy one. And if I forget I own it, I'll buy it again.

  2. I think my favorite of the "on writing" genre is Bird by Bird, but The Faith of a Writer by Joyce Carol Oates is one that I've go back to most often. I also think The Journal of Joyce Carol Oates 1973-1982 is just as good as any book about the life and craft, it's a hefty tome, and possibly only of interest of writers who admire her work. I would also highly recommend Virginia Woolf, A Writer's Diary, Leonard Woolf gleaned some bright gems from her diaries that are essential reading for writers...there's nothing like the primary source material of journals and diaries to deliver honest moments of a writer's struggles and triumphs.
