    A great list, a few of which I haven’t read. Yay! More books to read. I also suggest Mary Reufle’s “Madness, Rack and Honey,” inspiration for writers of any genre.

    I participated in a webinar with Jeff Goins (goinswriter) today. He was saying that a person should blog from their own world view. His illustration for non-fiction was Steven Pressfield’s The World of Art versus Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way. Pressfield’s world view is that creativity is a fight while Cameron’s is that it isn’t.

    Let me add that M.F.K. Fisher’s travel writing (with a food focus) is a great example of engaging, witty and fully conscious writing. Start with: The Art of Eating http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/94079.The_Art_of_Eating

    For a bit less practical of an approach, I also recommend Janice MacLeod’s Paris Letters. I had been putting it off because I feel like every single travel writer and their mom recommends it and I didn’t believe it was actually that good…, but I finally read it and I understand why everyone loves it so much. It’s a quick read and great for anyone trying to tap into their creativity.
