Writers on writing: A thank you

In an ideal world, all books would come with the email addresses of the authors, so that I could write to the authors thanking them for their wonderful books. Since that doesn't happen, here's a thank you note on a blog. Thanks to:

Natalie Goldberg, Writing Down the Bones, for opening up the magical universe of writing.

Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way, for releasing that inner artist-child.

Stephen King, On Writing, for giving a glimpse into writing and the writer's life.

William Zinsser, On Writing Well, for illuminating the world of non-fiction.

John Kachuba, How to Write Funny, for collecting such wonderful writers together to teach humour.

Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing, for an insight into the unique, powerful, Bradbury way.

The Elements of Style, Strunk & White, for the pithy lesson on language.

Anne Lamott, Bird By Bird, for a funny and poignant lesson on writing.
