Banyen's Description: 

Natalie Goldberg’s earlier Writing Down the Bones helped many of us to get writing and to enjoy the agonies and ecstasies of it, to live through our own voice and experience. She teaches a method of writing that goes beyond craft to the true source of creative power: the mind that is “raw, full of energy, alive and hungry.”

Here is compassionate, practical, and often humorous advice about how to find time to write, how to discover your personal style, how to make sentences come alive, and how to overcome procrastination and writer’s block—including 30 or so provocative “Try this” exercises to get your pen moving.

And she offers larger senses of the vision of the writer’s task, the writer’s dharma—including balancing daily responsibilities with commitments; knowing when to take risks as a writer and as a human being; coming to terms with success and failure and loss; and learning self-acceptance—both in life and art.
