5.0 out of 5 stars Natalie Goldberg is responsible my Memoir 28 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I fell in love with Natalie Goldberg for her books on writing. [she doesn't know it. She doesn't also know that she is my writing guru I've yet to meet]. What can I say about Natalie Goldberg that the writing world hasn't said yet about her simple teaching techniques! Those who have read her books on writing, especially Writing Down The Bones and Old Friend from Far Away would nod their heads in appreciation. And if you haven't read her books on writing, this novice writer from Greater London, can safely recommend you to get hold of these two books that will surely enhance your writing ability. I can only say that Natalie Goldberg is responsible for my own Memoir I'm about to complete. Best wishes to you, the reader.
