Writer Anne Lamott on the Best Writing Advice She's Received

Anne Lamott on Best Writing Advice_peoplewhowrite

People.com has been hosting live Author chats lately. Recently they featured Judy Blume and today writer Anne Lamott, author of Help, Thanks, Wow and Some Assembly Required is online. I asked her the best writing advice she’d ever received and she credited fellow writer, E.L. Doctorow as the source. “I loved what EL Doctorow said, that writing is like driving at night with the headlights on–you can only see a little ways in front of you but you can make the whole journey that way.” Check out the full live chat session here.
