Old Friend from Far Away
I first read, “Writing Down the Bones” by Natalie Goldberg. I’d had it on my list to read more as I got so much out of this one.
Old Friend from Far Away was the second of her books I’ve read (on my 3rd now). I enjoy her writing style and the writing exercises included in the book. I’m slowly making my way through them.
This book encourages one to let loose with their own unique writing style along with teaching one how to remember and allowing forgotten memories to surface.
And, lastly it teaches one how to practice. As with anything we undertake, practicing is how we sharpen the pencil of our writing practice. I would love to attend one of her True Secret Writing Retreats. Sounds amazing! xoxo
