I have recently finished reading a book by Natalie Goldberg called “Writing Down the Bones.” This is an excellent book about what it is to be a writer, strategies for writing, and reminders for when writing is tough. I finished the book in a few evenings. I highly suggest it first to writers, and second to other artists, and third to everyone else. There are a lot of stories and lessons that apply not only to writers or artists, but to everyone.
Take care, fellow travelers.
