Finally, the truth about what it takes to be a good writer.

As a producer/executive who worked with many good writers during my forty years in the entertainment business, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Anne Lamott gives the serious would-be writer a credible, practical, no-bullshit pathway to using your heart, honesty and compassion in the service of finding and developing your own unique voice. This book is not about becoming a successful writer. "Success" involves too many other factors, such as the market place, agents, editors and factors that are not under the writer's control. This book addresses only what is always under the writer's control: the struggle against self-doubt, the willingness to acknowledge that writing is truly hard work and the commitment to put forth the tireless effort that is required for you to evolve into a first-rate writer. Anne Lamott did it. You can too!!
