Though written in the late 80’s, Natalie Goldbergs book really helped alongside my struggles of writing. Though not structural on grammar rules, Natalie’s book really helps you unleash the inner writer through her exercises in the book.

More modern but certainly not least important is The Thorn Necklace: Healing Through Writing and the Creative Process by Francesca Lia Block.

This book is phenomenal and contemporary styles of writing, struggling with everyday life and your creative mind, or sharing her own life in small tidbits, this definitely makes the list!
