Bird by Bird

Author: Anne Lamott

First Sentence:
"The first thing I tell my new students on the first day of a workshop is that good writing is about telling the truth."

Rating: *

Hooked or Not:
Not hooked

My two cents:
Although this is one of my favorite books on writing, the first sentence doesn't do it justice. It is an instructional book after all. I was hooked by the introduction. Lamott's anecdotes provide more than just great tips on writing. Well worth the read for anyone looking to survive writer's block.
