Writing Down The Bones

Welcome to my Writing Down The Bones summary!

“What is important is not just what you do-‘I am writing a book’-but how you do it, how you approach it, and what you come to value.:” (p. 151)

booboo book rating: ★★★★★

This could be the most well-written book I’ve ever read. It’s so easy and enjoyable to read. It’s a feel-good book; a peaceful book. The subject is so intangible yet the author makes it connect and flow seamlessly.

It’s like an inspirational book for writers full of quick chapters/tips on a variety of writing-related topics related to the author. It’s almost an autobiography. One tip I felt worthy of mentioning here is putting on a different persona. Pretend you’re a biker, or a doctor, or a smoker, and put a cigarette in your mouth to help your creative abilities.
