  1. Stephen King’s book is one of my favorites and one that is heavily festooned with Post-it® Notes! I am currently enrolled in the University of Washington’s Editing program and enjoy it very much, even though it is pricey!

    • Very cool! Lately I have been reading other things – fiction – instead of books about writing, but I will get back to these eventually. I started reading King’s book and enjoyed what I read, but I haven’t finished it yet.
