Tinker with Tools Tuesday

Mr. Edward Magorium: "Unlikely adventures require unlikely tools."

When all else fails me  in writing I usually do something silly like watch Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium or  maybe I'll get down into the nit and grit of kid life and laugh at the silly things my kids do. Maybe I'll even jump on some bubble wrap. That always helps. Here are a few things to read after all the silly is out of your system and there is still hope:

On Writing by Stephen King
Pocket Keys for Writers -Ann Raimes
Elements of style -E.B. White
The Art of Fiction-John Gardner
Zen in the Art of Writing-Ray Bradbury
Self Editing for Fiction Writers-Rennie Browne, Dave King
On Becoming a Novelist-John Gardner
Politics and the English Language-George Orwell
Bird by Bird-Anne Lamont
Putting Your Passion Into Print-Arielle Eckstut, David Sterry
