Writing tip: Get motivated. Ready?

Read Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. This was the second book I read on my way to becoming a writer, and I loved it. It has to do with getting your words on the page. And Lamott writes her “instructions” with humor. You can’t help but feel that you can write too!

As I reread her today, I spot ominous words on page xxv: “The months before a book comes out of the chute are, for most writers, right up there with the worse life has to offer….”–fear of reviews and more. Maybe that’s partly why I started this blog; I need company!
