As a writher, Emma Wilkins spent years interviewing various people. She decided to interview her close friends and compile those interviews into a book.
The book is interesting and the people are relatable. Their stories of tragedy and triumph are inspirational.
The only thing I didn’t like about the book was the layout. She jumps from one person to another and it can be hard to keep all the stories and people straight.
All in all, I would say this is a book worth reading.
Which words would you use to describe your writing?
The most creative people have this childlike facility to play. – John Cleese
Many highly talented, brilliant, creative people think they are not — because the thing they were good at at school wasn’t valued, or was actually stigmatized. – Ken Robinson
The truly creative people tend to be outliers. – Nolan Bushnell
I always write with blue ink pens. I think the blue ink stand out more, because most notebooks have black lines. I like how the blue pops out on the page. Also, blue happens to be my favorite color.
It may seem trivial or weird, but I have a strong preference for blue ink pens. Does anyone else feel the same way about their ink color, or is it just me?
Writers spend a lot of time writing, but that’s only part of the job.
Writers must also read constantly. They should read books, magazines, news articles, fiction, and non-fiction.
Writers need to go out into the world and explore. Writers need to try new things and have adventures. If you spend all your time locked up in your house reading or writing, what will you have to write about?
One major benefit of being a writer, I can turn anything into a work related activity. If I spent the whole day reading, I was working. Going to the movies, museums, hiking, amusement parks, and having all sorts of adventures may be fun, but it is also research.
As a writer, my brain is always thinking about how I would describe everything I see, hear, or do.
I am a writer and I am always working.
