If you have ever wondered what it takes to be a writer, what it means to live a writer's life, this audio is for you. Ranging through all aspects of writing--from faith, love and grace to pain, jealousy and fear--Anne Lamott shows you how to keep your eyes open and write about what you see. Then she shows you how to survive by turning to the art of life with bracingly honest humor. 2 cassettes.
Think you've got a book inside of you? Anne Lamott isn't afraid to help you let it out. She'll help you find your passion and your voice, beginning from the first really crummy draft to the peculiar letdown of publication. Readers will be reminded of the energizing books of writer Natalie Goldberg and will be seduced by Lamott's witty take on the reality of a writer's life, which has little to do with literary parties and a lot to do with jealousy, writer's block and going for broke with each paragraph. Marvelously wise and best of all, great reading.
