"I'm convinced that none of the writers of my acquaintance can go another day without a copy of Natalie Goldberg's magical manual Writing Down the Bones."—Linda Weltner, The Boston Globe
"The secret of creativity, Natalie Goldberg makes clear, is to subtract rules for writing, not add them. It's a process of 'uneducation' rather than education. Proof that she knows what she's talking about is abundant in her own sentences. They flow with speed and grace and accuracy and simplicity. It looks easy to a reader, but writers know it is the hardest writing of all."—Robert Pirsig, author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
About the Author

(I bought two new copies through Amazon. I used them in teaching my writing class. Delivery was so quick and the books were brand new "used" from a secondary- Amazon seller. What great service!)
This is the second time I have owned this book. When I had it the first time, I did the writing practice, and it turned me into a verbal monster!
I read this on Kindle but I do have the paperback so I do plan to work through a few more exercises during November.
