From textbook to personal writing inspiration,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life (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.
