it was amazing
bookshelves: on-writing

As soon as I started to read Love Letters to Writers I felt embraced as a writer. Andi Cumbo-Floyd's wise and vulnerable storytelling about every aspect of writing and a writer's life gives you comfort and encouragement. With great kindness and yet persistence she tells you not to give up when you struggle, but to hold yourself accountable and keep on writing what you need to write.
From the many wise words (and it was a hard choice) I'll mention these from chapter two: "... write wild. . . . big and wild, like a fire." This is what the spirit of writing is about.
You should buy this book and keep it bookmarked or placed very close to your writing space, so whenever you feel lost in your writing life you can instantly grab it, read a bit, and feel hope again.
