I've never been that great at writing, mainly due to the fact that I've never taken any classes or read any books on the manner. I've just kind of self-taught myself with basic grammar, but not really that great at it. I know there are tons of how-to books on writing and probably various guides and such available. My question is what are some of the best general how-to guides out there in your guys' opinion? I don't just wanna go out dropping my cash on random books that may or may not be helpful, so it would be nice to get some feedback on some recommended helpful reads.
