Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life - Anne Lamott The author made some very good points in this book especially about emotion and being able to use them and imagination in writing. However, I was disappointed overall - the book just didn't live up to the hype. I found the author's effort to be light and humorous fell short. Many of her ideas about writing seemed amateurish and spoke to the disorganized, inexperienced writer. It lacked a logical and organized approach. In my opinion this is not a method of writing that can (or should) be used by everyone.I don't think I would recommend this book.
