Product description

Synopsis

With insight, humour, and practicality, Natalie Goldberg inspires writers and would-be writers to take the leap into writing skilfully and creatively. She offers suggestions, encouragement, and solid advice on many aspects of the writer's craft: on writing from 'first thoughts', on listening, on using verbs, on overcoming doubts - even on choosing a restaurant in which to write. Goldberg sees writing as a practice that helps writers comprehend the value of their lives.

About the Author

Natalie Goldberg is the author of ten books. Writing Down the Bones, her first, has sold over one million copies and has been translated into twelve languages. For the last thirty years she has practiced Zen and taught seminars in writing as a spiritual practice. She lives in New Mexico.
