Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within by Natalie Goldberg

Anyone with even the most vague interest in writing would find a welcome companion in this book. The process of writing here is not put into a sort of container to be made separate from life as it happens unpredictably. Life informs writing as much as writing can inform life - if we let it. There is a give and take between the two, and therefore I think that much of what she goes into could apply to almost any endeavour requiring a specific skill.
The way that Natalie Goldberg writes makes it seem almost as if she could be right there giving a writing workshop to a group, or giving feedback to a friend. She gives interesting exercises to complete that are simple and effective. They could be done in as much or as little time as you have to spare wherever you are. The key thing of course is to actually do them. To attempt to rid yourself of the 'goodie two shoes' traits that require you to always write something great rather than to genuinely engage with what you are doing. Her passion for stories and finding the words with which to express them is infectious.
Each chapter of her book has a different resonance each time I read it depending on my mood. It is a welcome companion for putting pen to paper, and I do not doubt that this book will continue to be at the desks of writers for many years to come.
