I find reading about what you shouldn’t do is sometimes of more use than the art of writing. Which is why I recommend this book:

How NOT to write a novel: 200 Mistakes to Avoid at All Costs If You Ever Want to Get Published

Then two more to read after that:

How to Become a Famous Writer Before You’re Dead: Your Words in Print and Your Name in Lights – Ariel Gore

Art of Writing Fiction – Andrew Cowan
