Fantastic book.      source
I reference @ANNELAMOTT's "Bird By Bird" a lot (rec'd by @GaryGulman on his episode) and I also recommend @marykarrlit's book "Art of Memoir" which I find completely inspiring. #WorkingItOut      source
A really great writing book and it’s a good read.      source
One of the greatest things ever.      source
“Bird by Bird,” by Anne Lamott, is my go-to gift or recommendation for anyone interested in writing, though it is as much a treatise on life as it is a creative-writing primer.      source
Ostensibly about the art of writing, but really it too is about life and how to tackle the problems, temptations and opportunities life throws at us.      source
This is a great book on becoming a better writer:      source
