How to

I'm not a big fan of books on how to write. I really don't like guides that just throw their wisdom down, saying, "this is how it is." They seem a bit cargo cultish to me. I'm also a little suspicious of people who claim mastery of the craft - in fact that is one my indicators of an author going off the boil.

"How to Write" books make me feel paranoid, that I'm doing it all wrong.

Actually, pretty much all "How to..." books make me feel paranoid, which is cool, a certain level of paranoia is probably a good thing.

you all hate me, don't you.
