lynda barry’s ‘what it is’ (+ being your creative self)

Lynda Barry

A friend recently alerted us to Lynda Barry‘s book What It Is:

” It is a book about writing that provides guidance on how you can re-discover skills you likely possessed before getting caught up in the notions of “good and bad”.

It’s more than a book. It’s a public service. Barry is trying to help everyone reconnect with lost creative capability and provides a path for doing it.

The book was published in 2008 and is a wonderful work of art in itself.”

We love it, and how daring, non-linear and honest Barry lets herself be…

…which makes for her being very wise…

…as evinced by her page on Brainy Quotes. We especially love this one:

“I wasn’t afraid to be laughed at or be loud.”
