#writing: Wisdom author to author



'You can't depend on (writing) going smoothly day after day. It won't be that way... See the big picture. You are committed to writing... Continue under all circumstances. Don't be rigid, though... Always stay friendly toward it. It's easier to come back to a good friend than an enemy.'  from Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg


'When an author feels passionate about a subject, that enthusiasm will come across in the quality of the story...
New writers need to pay attention to their originality. There's only one you, and if you want to succeed, write out of that unique you.'
-Ann Whitford Paul (Writer Magazine June 2012)

Thank you for your comment, Laurie.
I'm looking for other books like 'Writing Down the Bones'. Do you know of any?
