Show, don't tell.
Syd Field's Screenwriting guide is pretty good and contains a lot of things that can be applied to fiction too. I've read bits and pieces of On Writing, and found them very helpful, but I haven't picked up the book yet.
I like to write very psychological, cerebral short stories. Dark/Black humor too, but I have to be in the mood for those.
I'm addicted to detective stories-- Chandler and Hammet are both incredible, and I'm working my way through Hakan Nesser at the moment. Hemingway and Cormac McCarthy are also some of my favorites.
I just moved to Manayunk last week and I'd really like to get into the writing scene- I keep telling myself that I'll keep to a schedule and send my stuff to more publishers, so hopefully joining a group will help me with that.
I'm a recent college graduate working in TV production. I'm living in Manayunk and am trying to get on a writing schedule.
