Brenda Ueland stresses the idea that "Everyone is talented, original, and has something important to say." Drawing heavily on the work and influence of William Blake, she suggests that writers should "Try to discover your true, honest, un-theoretical self." Carl Sandburg called If You Want to Write "the best book ever written on how to write."
