Anne Lamott’s book Bird by Bird gives a brief explanation as to how she got into writing as a career and gives advice to those who want to become writers. It was fun to read and I learned a great deal from it.
Here are a few examples:
- Good writing is about telling the truth.
- Break your writing project into short assignments.
- All first drafts are terrible.
- Perfectionism will ruin your writing.
- Life is a series of short stories.
