Natalie's ad libs bewteen chapters I found to be very entertaining and informative. This book gave me the confidence I needed to continue doing what I once loved to do, which is to express myself through writing. Her suggested exercises and ways to get the ball rolling if you are struggling to do so really work. I love this book and I would highly recommend it.
I read Writing Down the Bones years ago when it first came out. I thought I wanted to be a writer but now I know I really prefer just to read about writing, and this book is among the best I've read.
This audiobook is special because I got to know Natalie, the writing teacher. She's interesting, honest, friendly, and fun. I like her.
I am married to the wonderful and amazing woman pictured here. I listen to books to make me a better husband, father and person.
I found this book from Jenna Blum's lecture series on writing and found both to be instructive and useful and invigorating. Now I just need to get the structure that Natalie speaks of and push forward. Thanks for the inspiration.
Great advices for writing, deep thoughts about life that actually will improve your writing. She has that deep calm voice that makes me feel like If I was home, a voice that makes me smile , that makes me feel I'm in a Café having coffee and croissant and she is there with me talking about her life.
Natalie has the power to make you feel you don't need anything else besides yourself, your pen and your paper for become a good writer.
Loneliness is not a fear that we should overcome. Loneliness is just that black big dog that we have to become friends with.
Wife, Mother, "Nana" and student - I am also a cruise addict.
Writing is a passion. I'd like to get to the lessons without the Zen Master information. This is one I would skim through and put back.
