Just before plunging into the dark terror of November a truly caring soul got me this book: The Sarcastic Guide To Writing

A fluffy, comfortable read on how not to do it :D

I remember someone here recommended this one on a similar note: How "Not to Write a Novel: 200 Classic Mistakes and How to Avoid Them--A Misstep-by-Misstep Guide". I quite enjoyed it (except for the bits that were a bit too close to stuff I'd written. Sigh).
