    1. I can t remember where I got the idea that I should read it It might have been on a list of recommended reading from the MFA program where I want to apply I am trying to figure out why I don t like this book.It s not him it s me I might be jealous of his freedom, of how he gets his work done, because he s a man He died in 2006 so I m switching my verb tenses His wife, Minnie Mae, did all the housework and he leisurely breakfasted with his buddies every day, went to his office for a few hours, ch [...]


    2. Everything I already knew, understood, and had practiced when it came to writinguntil told by teachers, instructors, and professors another way the right way their way here Writing is intuitive its a creative process for crying out loud Thank you, Do Murray, for letting me remember this.


    3. Such a motivational writing craft book, just as the title says I think there must be to getting published than he describes, but the simplicity of it encourages me I was especially delighted to learn that Donald Graves and he were mentors for each other, along with Elizabeth Cooke, apparently recently retired from University of Maine Farmington I am sorry both Donalds are deceased.I found things I m already doing, and identified some goal for the next year, as well as some lofty reach goals And [...]


    4. I swayed back and forth between liked it and really liked it when rating this book There were chapters that were amazing and inspiring, but there were also chapters that felt redundant and too personal to his own writing techniques Something that I will take away from this book is not to give up on my writing I recommend this book, but I also recommend to skip around to what most interests you.


    5. I read the first two sections and I found it was extremely helpful to me His voice is definitely that of an encouraging, loving grandfather Most of it was motivational, though there was some discussion of technique Definitely recommended


    6. Although I sometimes felt overwhelmed with some of what Murray said, I feel this is a very valuable book for both readers and writers.
