Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In If You Want to Write, Brenda Ueland sets forth not just a philosophy about how to write or how to create, but also about how to live. Beginning writers will certainly be encouraged by Ueland's words, but even the most experienced have much to glean from Ueland's simple wisdom. Everybody, writes Ueland in the opening chapter, is talented, original, and has something important to say.

All in all, I don't think that there's much she advises that books about writing haven't been advising ever since. Keep it simple, don't try to force your voice, etc. If you've read books on writing before, you won't find anything new here; just the same advice in new phrasing and with different examples. I'd probably like it more if the I-want-to-tell-you's and I-am-trying-to-get-you-to's didn't feel condescending.
