it was amazing

The pen is mightier than the sword...

This is my first book reading experience by Maraget Atwood. It is a personable memoir that opened my eyes to the value, importance and creativity of writing. If anyone writes--in any way---they'll learn from this book. I was especially astonished to read how most writers have a sort of "double identity". It makes perfect sense in that a writer has to take on many forms, personalities and feelings in order to emote a character. She also points out that 'an art of any kind is a discipline'. I loved this book...and I feel like I'm a WIZARD (as in the Wizard of Oz). You'll understand what I mean if you read this book. I have to leave some element of surprise. Trust me, you will be surprised. A great book--for writers of any type. ;)
