The author of five books, including the novels Hard Laughter, Rosie and Joe Jones, offers an "inspiring book about writing as a way of finding truth" (San Francisco Chronicle). "A reveille to get off our duffs and start writing now, while we still can".--Seattle Times. "Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, 'Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.'"… (mais)

I couldn't finish this book. I got to the 2/3 point and realized that I didn't need to be taking endless advice from this woman. Explanation of rating:

1 star - She's funny. I like her humor.
2 star - She gave good advice. I learned to write shitty first drafts and then read them over a month later and edit the shit out of them.
3-5 stars - This was boring. I do not want someone to lecture me for an entire book. The writing had no life. ( )

This felt like a better book the first time, when I was much younger, and thought, with Lamott, that every failure would result in my death. And if not my own death, I would daydream about someone else coming to harm for their undeserved success. Understandable. Self-doubt is real, but I could do without some of the strained analogies. It just makes it seem like she doesn't have any real problems in her life.

Some useful reminders: shitty first drafts, short assignments, have friends who read, editing sucks. Chapter on notecards is outdated. ( )

Maybe it's the pandemic but I couldn't finish this. It was good but I lost all oomph about 3/4 of the way in. ( )

A wonderful book of advice on life and writing. Lamott's words changed the way I view my writing growth as well as my personal struggles. Thank you for writing this book with such humility and good-humored faith, Lamott! ( )

A gift to all of us mortals who write or ever wanted to write...sidesplittingly funny, patiently wise and alternately cranky and kind--a reveille to get off our duffs and start writing now, while we still can.

I grew up around a father and a mother who read every chance they got, who took us to the library every Thursday night to load up on books for the coming week.

…getting all of one’s addictions under control is a little like putting an octopus to bed.
...perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor.
I understood immediately the thrill of seeing oneself in print. It provides some sort of primal verifications. You are; therefore you exist.
If you find that you start a number of stories or pieces that you don't even bother finishing, that you lose interest or faith in them along the way, it may be that there is nothing at their center about which you care passionately.
…if you are writing the clearest, truest words you can find and doing the best you can to understand and communicate, this will shine on paper like its own little lighthouse.”
