Quote of the Week: Anne Lamott

For me and most of the other writers I know, writing is not rapturous. In fact, the only way I can get anything written at all is to write really, really shitty first drafts.
--Anne Lamott, from Bird by Bird

How funny and honest is she? How much do you wish she were one of your best friends? 

Bird by Bird is a great book about "writing and life". Check it out here. I would have quoted the whole chapter, entitled "Shitty First Drafts", but that would have been too long. You can read the chapter here.
