Von jemandem der diverse Bücher über das Schreiben gelesen hat: dieses Buch ist eins der besseren.

Die Autorin vergeudet nicht zu viel Zeit damit, sich selbst zu beweichräuchern, sondern redet ehrlich auch über die Schattenseiten des Schreibens. Für jeden, der schonmal eine Stunde lang auf ein leeres Word-Dokument gestarrt hat und sich selbst gehasst hat, Anne Lamott versteht euch und sie ist bereit euch mit Witz und Charm zu unterstützen! Alles was mir für 5 Sterne gefehlt hätte wären mehr direkte Tips zum Schreiben.

Dieses Buch ist ein Muss für jeden Autoren, aber nicht direkt für Leute geeignet, die gerade erst (wieder) anfangen und einfach ein paar Handfeste Tipps wollen.

Enjoyable reading and a great book to go to when you're feeling a bit miffed about your work, it'll pick you up and make you realise that you're not the only serious writer out there who screwed up their writing schedule - quit often.

Anne Lamott covers every aspect of writing that is needed. The rest is to be found in the doing, and if you do get down to it and write, the book makes more sense in places after you've been writing for a while.

A great read for adeptus Minors and Majors of the Craft

For those who want a step by step guide to writing, or something to help you write the next great American novel or whatever, look elsewhere. This book is for those who relish honesty and want to be inspired, motivated and helped along by someone who wrestles with the same fears, misgivings and self-doubts of rest of the human race. Except of course those who claim to not have any of those. Anne keeps it real. That's her trademark.

Reading Anne Lamott is like sitting
down with a close friend who shares all of your idiosyncracies and insanities, as well as
your warped sense of humor. Bird by Bird gives Lamott's view of the writing life and
confronts all of the little details and major crises faced by anyone who's ever wanted to
write. Filled with warm and witty anecdotes from her own writing career and from the
classes she teaches, Lamott takes you gently by the hand and then proceeds to push, pull,
or drag you to the pencil or the keyboard because you suddenly feel that you have to write
something, right now! This is a book to keep next to the bed or the computer,
or wherever else you're likely to be when you need a nudge to keep going and a major
dose of inspiration. Read this book with a highlighter grasped tightly in your sweaty palm,
because you're going to want to come back to certain lines over and over again. Highly
recommended.

--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.")

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!

The title's perfect for this book: Bird By Bird offers a bird size portion of writing instruction. What it does provide is a hefty serving of hope for any writer with nothing to say, little talent, and a lot of pages to fill. What's sad is the author's total lack of respect for emerging writers. She cares little about teaching, and instead uses her bully pulpit to justify a very troubled life. Anyone can sympathize with a sad past, but does leading such a life qualify one to advise others? I think not. If you want to learn to write buy any other book. If you want to support those who need helpp with addictions, donate to a worthy charity.

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.

Anne Lamott is real, loveable, funny and honest, and this book will make most creative writers feel better about their own idiosyncracies and insecurities, but the actual advice on writing as craft could probably have been reduced to two pages. Buy it for entertainment and good company, not as a how-to book.
