Summary:

    Anne Lamont is hilarious. It is rare when you find an author whose voice is distinct. Her random comments and stories enhance the likely basic understanding of writing, publishing, and the overall crafting of storytelling. If I were a high school English teacher her book would be played all year long to remind students of the realities of writing, which are so entwined with the realities of life. I can only hope that my voice will be as clear in my memoir. If not, I might grab a set of plastic keys and try to open my front door with 'em. Likely, they wouldn't kick'n work, just like my memoir. Excellent job writing. The narrator was superb. Great team.

    I love this book and have listened to it twice in one week. Anne is funny, articulate, and quite personable. I think of all the authors I have read regarding the craft of writing, Anne is the only one who really stresses the routine of writing, the "sit down and write!" of writing even if it is just junk that comes out. Before listening to Anne's advice, if I didn't care for what I wrote on any given day, then I somehow couldn't give myself permission to sit down the next day and produce more junk. Anne says you sit down to it daily, that even if it is just junk, or a whole lot of nothing, doesn't matter. What matters is that by sitting down to it daily at a consistent and regulated time, the brain finds itself relaxing and will open to strings of creativity. Anne certainly gave me every reason to hope by how she constantly drives that point home throughout the entire book. Put in the time, which is the work, and the magic will happen. I can't recommend this book enough, especially to aspiring writers. And now I LOVE Anne Lamont and want more!
