If You Want to Write

By Brenda Ueland

Graywolf Press, USA, 1987. Softcover. Good Condition. In her 93 remarkable years, veteran freelance writer, memoirist, and writing teacher Brenda Ueland published some six million words. She once said there were two simple rules that she followed absolutely: to tell the truth, and not do anything she didn't want to do. Such integrity both distinguishes and defines If You Want to Write, her bestselling classic that first appeared in the late 1930s and has inspired thousands to find their own creative center. As Carl Sandburg once remarked, Ueland's primer is "the best book ever written on how to write." 179 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
