The first claim in this book that made me stop and think was ‘a good reason to write reflectively is that you will become more real to yourself as a writer’ – I’m not sure I know what that means, or understand what it offers. Is there an inauthentic or non-real way to be a writer? It seems a large statement but the claim in the book is that reflectiveness makes you more real ‘to yourself’ so perhaps it only means that you will have more faith in yourself. Who knows? By the end, I didn’t.
