Expert writing advice with a funny and easy style.,
This review is from: Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life (Paperback)
This author is a new find for me, but I will surely read much more of her. She is fabulously funny, incredibly informative, and absolutely generous with her thoughts and feelings and expertise on writing. The book warmed me, and made me feel that I could continue my writing with a stronger and better perspective. For aspiring writer's everywhere, and for writers published and not, this book will take you on a journey and offer invaluable advice for your hard work. It will help you revive that natural urge to write and keep you plugging away at the keyboard during the very worst of slumps. You will also laugh with Anne Lamott, the author, who is hilarious and honest and very witty. The practical and real life advice will stay with you as you struggle to become the writer you already are.

I think Betti is absolutely right about Bird-By-Bird and nails it in her review. I used this book for many years when I taught writing in two universities and students loved and appreciated it. Lamott offers practical suggestions for overcoming fears and getting to the work and joy of writing. Great review Betti!
