It Couldn't Have A Better Title,
This review is from: Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within (Paperback)
What started Natalie Goldberg off into writing was surprisingly simple for me. One day, in a bookshop, she was idly thumbing through a poetry book and there was a poem about cooking an eggplant.
There was an immediate realization within her that it is possible to write about what you would think to be a mundane subject. And that experience was the start of her successful career as a writer.
In the sixty-four short chapters Natalie manages to to tell her readers about every aspect of her career development, laying down for them a valuable blue print to follow. All this in a humanly style of down-to-earth experience; humor; wins; losses; people in her life and how she learned from them.
I even bought a copy for my granddaughter at the beginning of her second year at university.
Even experienced writers will find gems of inspiring brilliance in the book's two-hundred pages.
