really liked it
bookshelves: on-writing

I managed to devour this 171 page paperback in one day and really enjoyed it. However, a brief word of warning; don't buy it if you're desperately seeking serious instruction on the craft of writing, because it won't deliver.

What it does is entertain you with a a variety of short essays and humorous aphorisms about the author's experience as a writer.

It's no Bird by Bird, but a definite good read about living the life of a writer. Well worth the $13.95.
