What to put in the stocking this Christmas for a fiction writer

This year, I’ve had the challenge of looking for a writing book that would be appropriate for a 12-year old.  My niece is interested in writing, so I wanted to get her a book that would be educational on writing, fun, and yet not too focused on rules.  I wanted to eyeball them in the bookstore, but even the bigger Barnes and Noble really doesn’t have much in the writing department.  I started using 1-star reviews on Amazon to help me find what might be right for her.

Something like a book on writing is a very personal thing because all our creativity works differently.  Read the rest on Unleaded — Fuel for Writers.
