Julie's Writing Books

When we asked author and teacher Julie Smith, who we feature in this week's Word Count column, to recommend books on writing, she emailed saying, "My choices are all over the map -- popular authors, literary authors, writing teachers as opposed to authors, and even one literary agent. There's a reason for that: Different points of view are absolutely essential. I think aspiring writers should read them all, and then some. You never know what's going to work for you." Thanks, Julie! Here are her picks:

From Where You Dream: The Process of Writing Fiction by Robert Olen Butler

Immediate Fiction: A Complete Writing Course by Jerry Cleaver

No Plot? No Problem! by Chris Baty

The Writer's Journey by Christopher Vogler

How to Write Killer Fiction by Carolyn Wheat

On Writing by Stephen King
