Instructions on Writing
by Anne Lamott
Encouraging, supportive, witty,
entertaining, ...this is the book that inspired me to actually begin -
to deal with my own fears and self-doubts - to actually write! If you're
starting out or going through a dry spell, you'll find wonderful advice
and help here. Someone all writers can relate to, to get the job done,
or at least get rolling on it!
Down the Bones
the Writer Within
by Natalie Goldberg
The secret of creativity, Natalie
Goldberg makes clear, is to subtract rules for writing, not add them. Proof
that she knows what she is talking about is abundant in the speed, grace,
accuracy, and simplicity of her own sentences. A splendid combination of
Zen wisdom and down-to-earth advice about writing.
You Can Talk,
by Joel Saltzman
Saltzman delivers in a breezy
tome designed to help you quit taking yourself too seriously yet be utterly
true to your own voice at the same time. An excellent self-help book for
people who are scared to death of writing. "...with diligence, time,
and the right kinds of effort, just about anyone can be a writer."
The Eric Maisel Collection
Besides being a writer himself,
Eric Maisel is a therapist with a practice centered around artists, writers
and performers and has seen many of the demons that haunt the creative
A Step-By-Step Guide to
Starting and Completing Your Work of Art (Inner Workbook.)
The blank page, empty canvas,
or uncarved stone will often fill artists with dread. But so may the thought
of finishing, showing or even selling their work. Maisel guides the reader,
whether an experienced artist or someone just starting out, past the pitfalls
that appear in each stage of creation.
From the author: "...This
book of affirmations is compiled with the special needs of artistic persons
in mind. Arranged in alphabetical order by topic (Disbelief, Imitation,
Talent), each page includes a handful of relevant quotations by writers,
musicians, actors, or other creative people..." Great support for the
beginner through to the advanced writer.
Priniciples That Bring
Shows writers how to overcome
psychological blocks in order to create with passion, power, and ease -
yet it's so much more than this. Eric Maisel has done a wonderful job helping
us writers do our own job. Way to go Eric!
