If you have ever wondered what it takes to be a writer, what it means to live a writer's life, this audio book 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. She offers a generous step-by-step guide to "Getting Started," "Shitty First Drafts," "Character," "Plot," "Dialogue," and includes "False Starts," and "How Do You Know When You're Done?" And always, from the life of the artist, she turns to the art of life with bracingly honest humor. Lamott encourages, instructs, and inspires.
