I picked up pic related at a Half Price and it draws alot of literary techniques from great writers on how to write literary fiction (not a "How to Write a Bestseller!" kind of book, in other words).

I also read Aristotle's Poetics which was actually a very concise tool for learning how to craft plot and engage the reader.

I have no idea how to write at all and I'm just starting to get into it, as I've only written academic papers and all of my artistic forays have been in the visual arts. I do read quite a bit, which I hear is one of the most important ways to develop your style, but I'm also looking for actual writing handbooks.

I've also heard "The Elements of Style" is great, and is read universally in college writing courses.

"Burning Down the House" by Charles Baxter was our capstone text. It requires a base knowledge of creative writing fundamentals, but comprehension and application of Baxter's essays helped my writing a lot.
