Lamott is the author of several novels and works of non-fiction. She also teaches writing workshops for adults working toward become published authors. Lamott says, "I try to write the books I would love to come upon, that are honest, concerned with real lives, human hearts, spiritual transformation, families, secrets, wonder, craziness -- and that can make me laugh. When I am reading a book like this, I feel rich and profoundly relieved to be in the presence of someone who will share the truth with me, and throw the lights on a little, and I try to write these kinds of books. Books, for me, are medicine." (quote located on Wikipedia) Why Lamott as a literary model? Sometimes we get caught up in our frustrations with writing that it helps to hear that others have the same experience. Lamott captures that beautifully in this motivating book of "instructions on wiriting and life." Writing Invitation #6

She is angry, and so she blinds Teiresias, an appropriate punishment in her eyes for one who cannot see the truth. From that point on, Teiresias is known as the blind prophet.
