    Without intending for it to happen or knowing how, when, or why it got started, many people now find that they live in a rush they never wanted. If you feel busier than you've ever been and wonder how this happened and how you can keep up the pace much longer, you are hardly alone.

    Overall

    This book was a blessing to my overwhelmed mind. I also ordered the printed book so I can run off a page or two to give to others who question my mental stability. Those same people who don't use a computer (or claim they don't know how to do some task in particular), but rely on me to do their digital work for them.... and request it whenever they have a need. No wonder I'm so distracted.
    This book also makes me feel an urgency to make my grown children understand how much too much information can hurt them. Hopefully this will be well known by the time they have children.

    What does it take to be a writer? What does it mean to live a writer's life? This instruction book gives the answers to these questions, ranging through all aspects of writing - from faith, love, and grace to pain, jealousy, and fear.

    Colin says: "Wonderfully honest and funny"

    Overall

    This book was like a warm embrace by a good friend; a rare friend, one who doesn't judge you because of the mistakes you've made, or make fun of you for the resentment you feel for other's good fortune. She's been there, too. This book changed my life, and not just because Anne made me understand that even the best of writers don't wake up with a book in their head, but because life is all about taking one step at a time. "Bird by bird" is the only way to dig out from under the weight of the world.
