Bird by Bird : Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott

Western Kingbird, San Antonio NM, April 15, 2010
Bird by Bird

This goes on my growing wish list, recommended by Merlin and several folks at 43 folders

To quote a review at Amazon:

My teacher in my creative writing class handed out an excerpt from this book, and as soon as I read it, I knew I wanted to read the entire book, and thank God I did.

This is absolutely one of the BEST books I have ever read. I am not the type of person to pick a favorite book (there are just too many!) but I'm pretty sure this is my favorite book of all time. This was my first time reading Anne Lamott and I am so thankful that I did. As soon as I finished it, I wanted to pick it right back up and read it again, but I settled for Traveling Mercies instead, which is also very good.

I HIGHLY reccommend this book, especially if you like to write, or want to write. This is the best writing advice I have ever had, and you definetely will not be dissapointed. Even if you don't like to write, I am pretty sure you will love Bird by Bird. The humor is so fantastic, it's the laugh-out-loud type. Laugh A LOT out loud type. Anne Lamott says things that we all think, but do not say. It's great.
