Inspiring writers who are women . . .

In response to Gay Talese’s saddening inability to name any female writers who inspired him, John Scalzi came up with an incomplete list, off the top of his head, of a good few writers who have inspired him personally . . . and the comment, “That unfortunate man. Maybe he needs to read more widely. For a start.” It continues in the comments, with commenters’ “inspiring” lists.

There are some who would be on my “inspiring” list as well, some I haven’t read yet, some I like and/or admire but don’t personally find inspiring, and some I’m just not fond of. The great thing is the variety, and how many writers people have found inspiring.

What’s your incomplete “inspiring” list?
