Five Things About... Bird by Bird


Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
  1. Anne Lamott’s humor is so quirky and delightful.
  2. I love her complete lack of pretentiousness, her focus is on writing consistently, no matter what the quality. 
  3. I’m not currently working on any sort of writing project, but I found so much of her advice applicable to life. The ideas of being flexible, working with defeat, salvaging things you thought were worthless, can help us through so many of life’s challenges.
  4. I earmarked so many pages for use with my students. I love finding things to bring into the classroom
  5. I appreciated her honesty about her own experiences as a writer and how she’s dealt with her ego and expectations.
