“The very first thing I tell my new students on the first day of a workshop is that good writing is about telling the truth.”

More from Anne Lamott

“Writing has so much to give, so much to teach, so many surprises.”
“Writing is about hypnotizing yourself into believing in yourself, getting some work done, then unhypnotizing yourself and going over the material coldly.”
“To be a good writer, you not only have to write a great deal but you have to care. You do not have to have a complicated moral philosophy. But a writer always tries, I think, to be a part of a solution, to understand a little about life and to pass this on.”
