Publisher Comments:

In this distinctive guide to the craft of writing, author Laraine Herring shows us how to tune into our bodies and connect with our emotions so that our writing becomes an expression of our full beings, rather than just an intellectual exercise. With warmth and wisdom, Herring offers a path to discovering "deep writing"—prose that is unique, expressive, and profoundly authentic. Lessons and imaginative exercises show you how to: stay with your writing when your mind or body starts to pull you away; explore the five senses in your writing; and approach your writing without judgment.

Writing Begins with the Breath will open up a whole world of creativity for people who may not have considered themselves writers before, while also providing keen insights into the craft for seasoned writers.

Book News Annotation:

Herring describes the process of deep writing and how it comes not from the intellect but from deep within the writer's body. She discusses how writers must be aware of their bodies for this process to occur, to quiet the mind, and to observe breathing. She offers breath and body exercises to move blocks and prompts for journal writing and deep character work. The bibliography is annotated. No index is provided. Herring teaches creative writing in Prescott, Arizona, and is the author of Lost Fathers: How Women Heal from Adolescent Father Loss and Monsoons.

Synopsis:

Herrings unique approach to creative writing focuses on the importance of body and breath as a way to access deep writing--that authentic voice that emerges when the ego is quiet, the mind is still, and the heart is open.
