Having read and re-read this very encouraging, uplifting book twice, I felt it talked to my Spirit as an aspiring writer. It will take me some time to alter my life-long, conviction that I am a very mediocre writer, but am trying, and will publish my first book soon, with a great deal of trepidation about it not being nearly good enough. However, something must spearhead all writing, and so have decided to take the plunge. I hope anyone who reads it will forgive my stumbling attemt, and put it down to trying to do what Brenda Ueland advises about having the courage to at least 'give it a go.' Hopefully, each book should be an improvement on the one before. Her book was a true inspiration to me, and I would recemmend it to any first-time writer too afraid to take the plunge.

This book was written around 1937 - and though the sensibilities and cultural references of the time are apparent - the advice itself is still very relevant and helpful to anyone looking to improve their writing skills. Worth your time and money.

The copy I purchased for my kindle started many sentences in the middle of the thought without any offering to explain what was missing. As for the book itself it is genius in its simplicity and directness. If you are considering writing at any level i encourage you told read this book. It will inspire you to do great things. It was recommended by author Guy Kawasaki.

This book is so inspiring and assuring. Really helps you to put things in perspective and see that all of your fears and doubts are nothing new so you shouldn't dwell on them and just get to writing. A must read for any writer in any medium.

The reading of this book will shut door to the left brain, the critic in the mind, and allow the free flow of creativity.

Darling Brenda. This is certainly an encouraging book, for the new writer. It focuses on the joy of writing, rather than the business of it, and we certainly need some books like that.
