The Miracle of Books – Anne Lamott QUOTES FOR WRITERS

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you.
Anne Lamott

      I’ve just realised that while I’ve read so much of her advice to writers and being creative, I have not yet read any of her own writing. Where should I start, Beth?

        in no particular order: almost everything, small victories, bird by bird, hard laughter – really don’t have to start her books in any certain order – most are autobiographical and all interesting reads
