Publisher's Summary

Join the best-selling author of Writing Down the Bones as she gives you a map for taking your best ideas and inspirations - your thunder and lightning - and turning them into finished stories, essays, and novels.
The challenge we face as writers, Natalie Goldberg says, begins with the process of turning inward and then trying to communicate what we find. From the secret of letting characters and stories "write themselves" to finding mentor sources and responding to criticism to writing's one essential ingredient, which is the mind - here are all-new Zen-based lessons and reflections, refined and proven at Natalie's acclaimed national writers' workshops.
For published authors as well as new writers just filling their first notebooks, Natalie's vision encompasses not only the nuts and bolts of clear and complete writing but also the force from which books manifest.

Natalie Goldberg always gets me excited to come at my writing from different angles, try new things. I love her frankness and her persistence. Mostly, I love the fact that she has attempted to make writing a practice for reaching levels if higher mind. No matter what type if creative work we do, we have moments of reaching that zone where we seem to flow and do our best work. The struggle to get there is very real...but so rewarding. Keep going, Natalie. I have completely enjoyed your journey.
