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


Writing reviews, even if for 4 other people to read, is such important business. Sometimes I forget. This was the best book about writing I've read so far. Not just regarding advice, and I took a lot to heart, but also quality of prose. I wish I had listened to an audiobook of it. Anne's writing is quite beautiful and it never felt like I was being taught something, although I was to the point of taking notes. Maybe I'll reread it one day when I lose my way and need some stirring in the right direction.
