Join the bestselling author of Writing Down the Bones as she gives you a map for taking your best ideas and inspirations—your thunder and lightning—and turning them into finished stories, essays, and novels.

The challenge we face as writers, Natalie Goldberg says, begins with the process of turning inward and then trying to communicate what we find. From the secret of letting characters and stories “write themselves,” to finding mentor sources and responding to criticism, to writing’s one essential ingredient, which is the mind—here are all-new, Zen-based lessons and reflections, refined and proven at Natalie’s acclaimed national writer’s workshops.

For published authors as well as for new writers just filling their first notebook, Natalie’s vision encompasses not only the nuts and bolts of clear and complete writing, but also the force from which books manifest. This collector’s edition includes an audiobook read by the author, original commentary, and an exclusive author interview.
