Amazon.de

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.

Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
If there's a better book to read when you're doubting yourselfand your writing ability, I don't know what it is. IF YOU WANT TOWRITE by Brenda Ueland may be more profound, but it's not as funny... I don't think Lamott copied Ueland at all. Both books are wonders, Ueland's more spiritual or mystical--i.e. how to express your own unique self and write your truth--and Lamott's more worldy--how to get your rear in gear and start producing copy. Lamott's chapter on crumby first drafts lets you know you must start somewhere and can't do that if you're constantly criticizng and editing yourself. And she is so right--once you have a beginning, you can make it better..and better...and better. She doesn't really tell you how to do that in very specific terms, but for that there's great sourcebooks like SELF EDITING FOR FICTON WRITERS and ON WRITING WELL, which more than cover the job. Bird by Bird may be short on craft, but it's long on motivation, humor, and practical ways to get yourself writing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen You Are Crazy - Now Write That Book! 4. August 2004
Format:Taschenbuch
Anne Lamott isn't afraid to expose her fears, joys or idiosyncrasies. This book is a combination of a guide towards writing and a self-parodying autobiography. For any would be writer, Anne has several clever ideas on how to start, get going or just finish that darn manuscript we all think we have inside of ourselves. Sometimes she seems crazy, sometimes a genius, but she is always witty, endearing and entertaining. If you ever want to read an `in-your-face' reality-check book about writing that will encourage you to write and make you laugh, grab this book. It is pure joy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the funniest books I've ever read-- 1. August 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
--right up there with Lamott's "Operating Instructions." This book may not help you much if you're looking to improve your writing, but it may be the best book you'll ever find to help you get over your blocks and WRITE.
Lamott has a gift for looking at the world and especially herself with meticulous and embarrassing honesty and finally loving and accepting what she sees. Readers who are into Zen or a similar spiritual practice will find inspiration here for their practice as well as their writing.
(Also recommended for encouraging you in creative expression and befriending yourself: Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way" and Natalie Goldberg's "Writing Down the Bones" and "Wild Mind.")

2.0 von 5 Sternen Funny, Occasionally Obnoxious, but Never Dull 7. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I think she could have written the actual writing advice in half this book, but at least she did the rest (partial autobiography) in an entertaining way. The first section and the last chapter were the best, but the other parts...were...what...? She urges the reader to write about one's childhood, but what if the aspiring writer doesn't want to begin at this point? Lamott lost me once she started describing character and plot...maybe, I'm just not that smart but she spoke in concepts and I just didn't click with her style. Found Julia Cameron more useful.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Caught in Lamott's witty spell 9. März 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Anne Lamott writes more eloquently than most on the trauma of writer's block. When a professor of mine spoke highly of BIRD BY BIRD, knowing I was studying flow for my own (subsequently bestselling) book WRITING IN FLOW, I was prepared to dislike it. After all, Lamott's novels are hardly famous, and the book she did begin to get known for is a memoir of the first year of her son's life. Since I started and stopped something similar, I was jealous.
But then I fell under her spell. Bird by Bird is a very funny book, and most of the humor is the endearingly self-deprecating kind. Besides, Lamott speaks openly of her own jealousy of any writer friend who is slightly more successful at the moment than she is. I'm a sucker for honesty.
Don't read this book to be entertained however. Read it to find out something about designing a plot, creating characters, and writing dialogue. Read it to find out how good writing happens. According to Lamott, it happens when "you sit down at approximately the same time every day. This is how you train your subconscious to kick in for you creatively." The honest part comes you stare at it for an hour or so. You begin rocking, just a little at first, and then like a huge autistic child."
This quick-reading book is filled with fresh anecdotes, personal revelations, and practical tips about taking notes, writing groups, and who should read your drafts. You complete it all in a rush ending with the reassuring sense that regular people, like the author and yourself, if you work harder than you expected to have to, can produce something very good. And although Lamott mainly writes about her own individual experiences, her insights and advice coincide nicely with what I found to be true by interviewing 76 top novelists and poets for my WRITING IN FLOW.

5.0 von 5 Sternen From textbook to personal writing inspiration 21. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I first encountered Bird by Bird in my college Comp I class. My professor read us the part about school lunches, and had us all write an exercise from it. A year later, I took the same professor's Creative Writing class, and Bird by Bird was one of the text book's we used. I was thrilled. We were to read the book, and write an essay about what it had meant to us for part of the final grade in the class. That was one of the easiest assignments I've ever had. The hardest part was where to stop! Since then, Bird by Bird has been on and off a shelf next to my computer: on the shelf, waiting like a good friend to lend encouragement at a glance, off the shelf in those times when I've found writing difficult and needed a little more in-depth look at the "why"s of writer's block. I definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys writing, knows someone who does, or just likes a good read now and then. It's very entertaining, and gives a good perspective as to what's really going on in a writer's mind and life.

A charming and often funny book on just what it says, writing and life. "Bird by bird" could be used as a philosophy for managing a lot of things....Anne for President!
