    The Courage to Write: How Writers Transcend Fear af Ralph Keyes (alexmuninn)
    alexmuninn: Courage to Write has a very similar message to Ueland's book (indeed, Keyes quotes If You Want to Write) but it was written in 1995 rather than 1938, so Courage to Write lacks the disturbing and dated racism of If You Want to Write.

It's an interesting pep talk, which can be summarized as don't try and write like other people or the way other people want you to write, but write the way you want to write and keep at it. This is hard to argue with. ( )

This was such an inspirational book for me as an artist. It motivated me to continue to write and paint when I felt my art was worthless. It may still be worthless, but through this book, I began to have fun with the process again. I'm happy to see there are so many people who like this book as much as I did. I recommend it to anyone who wants to create something. I think Miss Ueland had a very nice philosophy of how to live. ( )

A classic originally published in 1938. I didn't really enjoy reading this eBook too much, probably because it is labeled a "classic". But, there is always something to be learned. At times I felt like she was just rambling on a bit, and found it boring when reading through other writings. Also, the transition from book to eBook did not go over very well. There are parts of chapters that appear to be missing and extra ticks here and there throughout this eBook. But still very easily readable and understandable. And I did actually learn quite a bit about how important it is to write honestly and from your true self, and she tells you exactly how to do that, thus, bumping the rating up from a 2-star to a 3-star.

I love the fact that Brenda Ueland disregards all the writing rules that restrict ones creativity. If you want to write, you must write freely and without fear of judgement, just as when you were a child and putting on those neighborhood performances, which I surely did. You must learn to write from your true self. You can fine tune your writing later.

If you want to write, you must find quiet time to give yourself the opportunuity to imagine or create thoughts. Maybe during walks without music streaming in your ears. We are so distracted with noise all the time. This inhibits our brain's imagination and creativity, which she believes is the Holy Spirit. And I would probably have to concur with her analysis. How can we hear God or the Holy Spirit speak to us if we are never quiet or have idle time?

You must always write from your true self not your theoretical self, or fake self, never for money, nor for posterity, nor to impress...and never write pretentiously. Don't write trying to make others believe you are smarter than you are. This never works and you lose yourself, your voice, in the writing.

Remember to TELL your story, not write it out. It will help to write everyday. She suggests keeping a diary, writing freely from the mind, actually vomiting your thoughts out on paper.

A great idea: Clear out a desk drawer, and write on paper, put that paper in the drawer. After one year of writing, go back and read all you've written. You will find your voice in the process and learn to tell your story. You will find your true self. ( )

If you can ignore the overt Christian themes and embrace the core of Ueland’s theory of the artistic spirit, this is an inspiring kick in the butt for an aspiring writer. She does wander into some weird “great man” territory near the end that is outdated. ( )
