Publisher Comments:

What is writing? Can anybody do it? What's the best way to get started? And keep going? Two decades ago, when Writing Down the Bones first appeared, Natalie Goldberg started a revolution in the way we practice writing. Instead of looking at writing as something open only to a few, she made it available to everybody. Her simple, ingenious exercises set free a generation of writers waiting to experience the inner and outer pleasures only writing can provide. Now, for the first time, Natalie Goldberg reads this classic work, while offering new commentary about the creative, spiritual, and practical dimensions of writing. Goldberg looks back on her life, sharing the story of how her meditation studies with Zen master Katagiri Roshi inspired her to develop practices for writing down the bones: the essential, awakened speech of the mind. Here is a treasury of these Zen-based practices: dozens of tested ideas, suggestions, and exercises that help new writers get started, and seasoned writers keep going. Absorb these words with your whole body and mind, Goldberg teaches, and you will learn this proven practice for coming face to face with your own mind, while opening up to joys of the writer's life. This special collector's edition includes an exclusive interview with the author available nowhere else.
