What the community says about Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
- " "Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, 'Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.'""
- "This book has phenomenal reviews! The author captivates her reading audience and helps encourage them to find their inner story teller. Reading the reviews, I think the book helps writers overcome any writers block. The book does not teach grammar skills though. "
- "Bird by Bird is one of the first books I picked up when deciding to write. I not only picked it because it is a stepping stone to writing but because of the quirky little life instructions too. Together this book helps.""This instructional book about learning to write a novel is great. It is so helpful, I was able to finally start the novel that I had been wanting to write for years! ""Great starter to follow if you want to learn to write novels like I do. Easy to understand and provides me with a solid base to start from."
