For writers, she recommends the book:

For Writers Only  by Sophy Burnham

Beginning is the hardest part. You roam the house, your rooms, the streets. You are jerked on the leash of your unease. Everything is calling to you—plants, children, animals, or worse, the need to make money: weed me, water me, feed me, pay me, clean me, tend me, buy me; while inside anxiety and tension curl like the edge of an oyster cooking.


Member, Krista Lynn, writes supernatural romantic suspense and cozy mysteries.

She recommends the book:

Bird by Bird

   For me and most of the other writers I know, writing is not rapturous. In fact, the only way I can get anything written al all is to write really, really shitty first drafts.

   The first draft is the child's draft, where you let it all pour out and then let it romp all over the place, knowing that no one is going to see it and that you can shape it later.
