My year's reading ends with a writing book. I think that I've reached a certain level for this topic. Books about writing tempt me endlessly, but I've read so many that they're all starting to sound the same. I believe that this means I should stop reading books about writing and just write more, or at least rely more heavily on the great writing books for inspiration. I seem to always get something new out of reading a bit of Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird, for example. Pen on Fire is a fine book; I just got to it too late to find a new message in it. I'd recommend it enthusiastically for new or aspiring writers who want encouragement, but if you already have a shelf full of writing books, you probably don't need this one.
