What I love about this book is how Donald writes. He writes so honestly and open that you can’t help but feel a part of his story and the process he goes through, making his life a movie. His self-discoveries throughout the process lead to the questioning of our own self-discoveries.
What I really took from this book, I think, was the idea of “living your own story”. For any aspiring writers out there, this is such an important theme to grasp. I know that even for me, sometimes I’m so caught up in what to write and how to write it, I forget to just LIVE my own story.
Inside the overall story, there are some great mini-stories in the book. I would recommend this book, and especially to anyone who is looking into writing and all that the process entails. Even if you aren’t looking to write anything and just want a good book to read, then I suggest picking it up.
