"How to Become a Writer," taken from Lorrie Moore's debut short story collection Self-Help (1985), is an enjoyable short read that uses the 'How To/Self Help' model in order to discuss its topic. It's ironic and witty, hilarious and honest, and although it's very specific to one experience, it is, at the same time, extremely relatable.
I highly recommend reading this piece, and the entire collection if you enjoy her writing as I do, especially if you are an aspiring writer. I've added the link to a PDF version of the chapter. I hope you enjoy it.
Let it inspire you,
