Overview

So you want to be a writer? Welcome to a wonderful world that has the potential to make you a lot of money - but it's not all fun and games. If you want to write you'd better be ready for frustration, writer's block, and criticism of your work.

As if that weren't difficult enough, it's also really tough to get started because of fear. But here's some advice if you're thinking about becoming a writer: "Just begin". Writing is tough, but there are so many good things along the way. You have wins, can make great money, and especially meet some of the best people in the world.

Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life has all the lessons you need to become a great writer, and it will help you find the motivation to just begin.
