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.

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.

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

A treasure of a book! Brenda reminds us that God gives us each undeniable talent and creativity, and shows the path to let it flourish in ourselves and others.

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.
