Wherein we discover that many of the "rules" for good writing and good sex are the same: Keep your hand moving, lose control, and don't think. Goldberg brings a touch of both Zen and well... *eroticism* to her writing practice, the latter in exercises and anecdotes designed to ease you into your body, your whole spirit, while you create, the former in being where you are, working with what you have, and writing from the moment.


"A life changer of a book, for anyone who's ever had a notion to write. Every page so alive, buzzing with such verve, such zest, such Zen."— Urthona "Goldberg's observations on how to write more naturally are informed by her own experience as a teacher and writer and by her study of Zen meditation. She offers radically new perspectives of the actual act of writing."— New Age Journal

2.0 von 5 Sternen Too much of her, to little of writing 1. August 2004
Von Peter
Nathalie Goldberg seems to be a sincere woman. She has two kids, likes nudity beaches and is a Buddhist. The question is: How do I know that?
I know that because I have read "Writing down the bones", a book on writing, although it reads like an autobiography in some passages.
The two messages that Goldberg has in store for you are the following:
- write with energy
- write with passion and patience
Somehow, conveying this takes her more than 160 pages.
If she had told less of her and more about writing, it might be worth the money, but it isn't.
If you want to start writing, do it, with energy, passion and patience and go buy good books, but not this one in any case.

First of all, let me begin with what you are not going to find in this book. There aren't any Writer's Digest type of articles here or heavy discussions on plot or character. This is a book made of the stuff it suggests you to do, writing practice, understood as free form, stream of consciousness writing. Its inspirational essays guide you through Mrs Goldberg's creativity process and encourage you to start writing and discover yourself in the process. Some people won't like its cheerful, honest tone, but for some of us writing is more than just craft. If this is your approach, this book will be worth every cent (and I wrote a poem on cheese that has been a great success as a result of this writing practice).

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is a sleeping giant of energy. 16. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I bought "Writing Down the Bones" by mistake. When I first got online a few years ago, I was trawling around Amazon's Website and clicked the wrong button, but thought I had corrected my mistake and "unordered" this book. Imagine my surprise when it showed up on my doorstep a few days later. Because I believe there are no accidents, I hung onto the book, knowing I would need it sometime in the future. I was right. A year later, I got a job writing and editing software manuals. (Try making those witty and brilliant!) Two years later, I enrolled in a creative writing course at my local junior college to get the dry taste of computer lingo out of my mouth, and "Writing Down the Bones" was the only required text. Since then, I have used this book to jump-start me when I can't get my brain to turn over in anything other than PC or mainframe mode, because Ms. Goldberg's fearless approach to creativity never fails me. Even though I'm an editor as well as a writer, I agree with her view that mechanics are secondary to the energy attached to the writer's words. Just like the human heart, the structure is dead without the life force to drive it.
I have two suggestions for writing exercises. First, write haiku on Post-It notes. (I find it useful to challenge myself to express the essence in as few words as possible.) Then get up from whatever you're not quite doing, and buy this book. After all, you're reading this review, and there are no accidents. Good luck!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A triumph! Very inspirational 9. Juni 2000
This is perhaps one of the most helpful books on writing I've ever read. Natalie Goldberg is part guru, part therapist, part best friend. I highly recommend this book to anyone who writes for a living, wishes they wrote for a living and especially for anyone who's convinced they can't ever write for a living. She'll remind you what you love so much about the written word and reawaken your enthusiasm for literature. Best of all she'll encourage you all the way!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Into the Void and Out With Ideas 17. Juni 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Follow the advice that Ms Goldberg gives and let yourself become one with the page. There is no paper, no hand, no pen, no block. There is the void, the silence, and the act of creation and when you stop, there is your novel, complete and perfect before you on the page.
Well, alright, perhaps not perfect but this marriage of Zen and common sense, beautifully written and blazingly clear, is a wonderful manual for any writer.Indeed for anyone that takes a moment to look at the world around them, anyone who does more than simply move unthinkingly through their life like a robot, this book is a rare delight.
Once read thoroughly, it can be used randomly as an antidote to writer's block. Open almost any page and begin reading to feel the log jam in your cortex start to shift and jostle. Your fingers flex, your eye sparkles. The words tumble over themselves as ideas outpace your hand and your writing becomes a hellish scrawl. Buy a computer and take a speed typing course.
My thanks to Ms Goldberg for a truly inspirational book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A well-earned reputation for greatness 22. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
When I picked up this book at the age of 12, I was unaware of the fact that it had already become a sort of writers' bible in the industry. Later, when I did become aware, I was not at all suprised. Natalie blends the practical with the spiritual in a way that only an artist can appreciate and desperately need. That rainy afternoon I first began to read it, which I remember well, led to years of writing and stacks of spiral notebooks in wobbly towers that nearly reach the ceiling of my basement. Let others label it as "new-age" or "self-indulgent" but for myself, and for thousands of others, it has been the key to a life of writing. Natalie gives us all permission, and I for one am so glad.
