WRITING DOWN THE BONES Natalie Goldberg

by: Natalie Goldberg




This wasn’t the first book on creative writing but it’s made an impact like no other. Rather than give rules for writing, instead it takes them away, and suggests an instinctive and “beginner’s” attitude. This is grounded in Natalie’s many years of Zen experience – it’s a Zen book as much as it’s a creativity book. Since its first publication in the 1980s it has influenced countless writers; each chapter is like a whole teaching on its own – you can dip in and out and if you don’t like one chapter you can jump to the next. This revised edition includes a new foreword by the Artist’s Way creator, Julia Cameron.
