Product description

Review

“Many years ago my older brother gave me Writing Down the Bones with the inscription, ‘So write already!’ It was for me and for many readers a novel and fresh way to approach writing. I have delighted in Natalie’s books ever since and in her method, having had the chance to see her at work in Taos. The True Secret of Writing is a rich voyage, a priceless distillation of her accumulated wisdom and experience as a writer, coach, and instructor on mindfulness. This lovely volume will have a permanent place on my writing shelf.” (Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone)

"Heartfelt, funny, wise, pleading, calm, and ferocious, Natalie just makes you want to write!" (Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart)

“Natalie Goldberg has done the unthinkable, she has shared the secret teaching. The buddhas of time immemorial are rejoicing and the literary bodhisattvas are smiling in silent approval. Read this book, then write a revolutionary manifesto!” (Noah Levine, author of Dharma Punx)

"Beautifully written, informative, intriguing, and passionate, The True Secret of Writing is a book to be appreciated, read, and reread by the beginning writer as well as the published professional. Natalie captures the pulse and spirit of the writing life with pristine clarity." (Lee Gutkind, Editor, Creative Nonfiction, Author of You Can't Make This Stuff Up)

"A uniquely delivered Eastern Zen approach to writing....A pleasantly meditative intuitive writing guide." (Kirkus Reviews)

"A fresh practice for writing... rooted in the Zen tradition." -- Shambhala Sun (---)

“Goldberg’s observations — and guidance on how to conduct a sit, walk, write workshop on your own (with as few as two people) — are inspiring. Readers will be eager to find a café or a quiet room and get down to the business of knowing their writing, and by doing so knowing themselves more deeply.” (Santa Fe New Mexican)

About the Author

Natalie Goldberg is the author of Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within (1986), which broke open the world of creativity and started a revolution in the way people practice writing. Natalie has written eight other books, including fiction and a memoir. She has been teaching seminars on writing as a practice for the last thirty years.
