If you want to writeIf You Want to Write – Written by Brenda Ueland

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 to do anything she didn’t want to do. Such integrity both distinguishes and defines If You Want to Write, her best-selling 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”.

If You Want to Write – Customer Reviews

“A perfect tonic to recharge your writing batteries”

I listen to this fabulously narrated classic by Brenda Ueland once a year just to clear my head and re-inspire myself to continue writing. My only complaint is that it is abridged and some of the original gorgeous text is missing. But still listening to this audiobook on a brisk walk brings renewed zest to my writing practice.

“Thank you life, for the gift of Brenda Ueland”

I have her original book, thanks to Anne Lamott’s recommendation but now the audible version makes everything complete. I can listen to Brenda’s inspiring words whenever I have a minute and they not only change the way I write but the way I live. The narrator is absolutely fantastic. Thank you, thank you.

“The most inspiring book”

I have always shyed away from writing, but this book gives one such positive reinforcement as well as great ideas to help you get over any kind of writer’s block. I highly recommend it to any aspiring writer.
