Book 2 of 7

Here we are at book two of the seven day book challenge.  The biggest difficulty is selecting a suitable book from a lifetime spent reading.

On Writing by Stephen King
On Writing is part biography, part solid advice, and part rambling.  The point that King drives home several times is that when you're not reading, you should be writing.  The two are inexorably intertwined and should be treated as such.

If you've ever considered the craft of writing, I'd encourage you to skip all the How To books and read this one.  Then write something.  The only other books you'll really need is a good dictionary and a better thesaurus.
