1) Stephen King – On Writing
2) Robert McKee – Story
Sage Cohen – A lovely book on getting organised and getting writing. General appeal.
Don’t be put off by the title (well, actually, if you want to be a screenwriter then maybe this is EXACTLY for you.) It’s a good, no-nonsense breakdown of the structure of story. For that reason, it’s helpful for ALL writers.
This has become something of a bible in creative circles. And, like the bible, it has attracted criticism and misunderstanding. It’s certainly a “fuzzy” look at creativity but at its core is the desire to get things done. The important things. The creative things. Definitely worth a try…
This is the book that started my writing career. It’s a general introduction to the subject, one laced with optimism but not unrealistically so. It’s practical, uplifting and inspiring.
