During the most recent meeting of my Writer’s Writing group, we decided to start making lists of writing books that we like and want to recommend. In this way, we will be able to post our book list to our group’s Facebook page and share the information with each other. As I was working on my book list, I decided to share it here, at Cool Cat Writers.
The following books are where I am living, now. I’m finding inspiration, honing my craft, and writing more than I expected. 🙂
