Agree with the other choices, but I hated "On Writing." It's not a book about writing. It's a memoir that talks a little bit about writing. Everything in that book that deals with writing you could get from "The Elements of Style". Most of the writing books I have liked haven't been WD books, hate to say. "Wild Mind" by Natalie Goldberg is still the one I dig out when I'm having a hard time (and I've owned the book for 11 yrs--wish they would release it in hardback b/c it's getting pretty frayed). However, "Writing in Flow" has some pretty good techniques for beating writer's block, but not much different than what you would find on the 'net. I just got "Guerrilla Marketing for Writers" and love it, but I think it's geared toward someone a little less guerrilla than I.

Story Structure Architect is fascinating. I got it for Christmas, and although I haven't finished it completely yet, it's still a fascinating read. It analyzes all of the different plots in all books throughout literature. Highly recommend!
