9789650060282: If You Want to Write: A Book about Art, Independence and Spirit

For most, the hardest part of writing is overcoming the mountain of self-denial that weighs upon the spirit, always threatening to extinguish those first small embers of ambition. Brenda Ueland, a writer and teacher, devotes most of her book--published back in 1938, before everyone and their goldfish got their MFA's in creative writing--to these matters of the writer's heart. Still, the real gift of the book is Ueland herself: She liked to write, she didn't care what anyone thought, and she had a great sense of humor. You're simply happy to hang out with her.

From the Back Cover :

In her 93 remarkable years, Brenda Ueland published six million words. She said she had two rules she followed absolutely: to tell the truth, and not to do anything she didn't want to do. Her integrity shines throughout If You Want to Write, her best-selling classic on the process of writing that has already inspired thousands to find their own creative center. Carl Sandburg called this book "The best book ever written about how to write". Yet Ueland reminds us that "Whenever I say 'writing' in this book, I also mean anything that you love and want to do or to make". Ueland's writing and her teaching are made compelling by her feisty spirit of independence and joy.

About the Author :

Brenda Ueland was born in Minneapolis in 1891. She published three books, including Me (an autobiography) and Strength to Your Sword Arm: Selected Writings, as well as several articles and short stories. A widely acclaimed teacher of writing for many years, Ueland was knighted by the King of Norway and set an international swimming record (for over-80-year-olds). She died in 1985.
