    1. The Little Black Book of Writers' Wisdom by Steven D. Price is one I can't put down! It's not a story or tons of mini stories, but like a book of answers for other writers to learn from. I found this little black book to be excellent! It's got many odd questions of mine answered by authors and others who know what writing is all about.The book has so many different sections covered in writing, but all answered in words of other authors, well known. I really never thought a small book that has no [...]

    2. A lot of fun -- quite a number of good quotes on writing. Here's one: A.J. Liebling said, "I can write better than anybody who can write faster, and can write faster than anybody who can write better."

    3. Such a charming dip into book . Featuring quotations like Truth is so hard to tell, it sometimes needs fiction to make it plausible - Sir Francis Bacon - Write without pay until someone offers to pay - Mark Twain -I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by -Douglas Adams We tell ourselves stories in order to live - Joan Didion One wants to tell a story, like Scheherazade, in order not to die. It's one of the oldest urges of mankind. It's a way of stalling death. - Carl [...]

    4. My grandmother gave this to me as a Christmas gift. Lots of nice quotes in here from a great variety of artists. There are also pictures!

    5. Good quotes, some are my new favorites, but barely any women writers are mentioned. It's the 21st century people!
