Take Joy

Take Joy:  A Writers' Guide to Loving the Craft by Jane Yolen

If you are looking for an orderly, systemic book dealing with all the major aspects of writing, this may not be what you are looking for.

However, it does hit on a lot of the major aspects, often with sideways approaches that hits portions that a more systemic approach might not manage to encompass.  And it is eloquently written and in some interesting treatments -- it contains not one but two writer's alphabets.

I am particularly fond of the section on voices.
