Becoming a Writerby Dorothea Brande, John Gardner (Foreword by)
A reissue of a classic work published in 1934 on writing and the creative process, Becoming a Writer recaptures the excitement of Dorothea Brande's creative writing classroom of the 1920s. Decades before brain research "discovered" the role of the right and left brain in all human endeavor, Dorothea Brande was teaching students how to see again, how to hold their minds still, and how to call forth the inner writer.

Very Helpful. I first read this in college. It inspired me to write (I'm a published author.) Also, not everyone knows Dorothea Brande wrote a mega-bestseller on living well, that still has many fans: Wake Up and Live.
This book hits the nail on the head (as they say) and is extremely informative and essential for all the would-be writers out there.
Want to be a Writer? Then read this book. It is bound to become a classic in the genre. If you are a blunted/stunted Artists for whatever reason? This book is for you.
