Natalie Goldberg, author of the bestselling Writing Down the Bones, shares her invaluable insight into writing as a source of creative power, and the daily ins and outs of the writer’s task. Topics include balancing mundane responsibilities with a commitment to writing; knowing when to take risks as a writer and a human being; coming to terms with success, failure, and loss; and learning self-acceptance—both in life and art.
Thought-provoking and practical, Wild Mind provides an abundance of suggestions for keeping the writing life vital and active, and includes more than thirty provocative “try this” exercises as jump-starters to get your pen moving.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Natalie Goldberg, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
NotJustLaura’s Comments: Sometimes it’s good to look before you leap. If I’d known this book to be written from a Buddhist perspective I wouldn’t have requested a copy via NetGalley as it just doesn’t fit with my own worldview. Sometimes it’s good to have that view challenged but sometimes there just doesn’t seem enough of an area of agreement and, unfortunately, this is one of those times.
