Best Books on Writing and Creativity in 2013

Maria Popova of the online magazine Brain Pickings Weekly, is a wonderful source for all things of interest to writers. This recent post of hers, The Year’s Best Books on Writing and Creativity is self-explanatory. She gives excerpts for the books, and comments on why she’s chosen them. The books include Why We Write, edited by Meredith Maran, Odd Type Writers, by Celia Blue Johnson, and Still Writing by Dani Shapiro, to name but three of the eight she’s chosen. Enjoy!
