Bird By Bird

Jan 28th, 2009

Okay, so I’ve recommended this book to various people about 4 or 5 times since I read it a few months ago. Might as well post it here: Bird By Bird by Anne Lamott.

If you have any inkling to write stories, I think you’d like this book. I liked the tone and style (sort of a gentle manifesto mixed in with amusing anecdotes) and found it inspiring and helpful. It’s a quick but worthwhile read. As I read more about the writing process, I keep on seeing parallels to the visual creative process as well. Some of the neural pathways must be the same or something.
