Mark David Gerson has given a tremendous gift to writers on all levels. I had been searching for affirmations for writers for a long time and never found anything that was really useful until I came across THE VOICE OF THE MUSE. The book, together with the companion CD, are invaluable tools for finding inspiration, dealing with writer's block and having the courage to go on with a creative project in the face of one's own inner demons. Both the book and the companion CD are insightful, intelligent, caring and practical. While the information is geared primarily to writers, any artist will benefit from this brilliant, sensitive material.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Moon Quest was a great novel, but I didn't know what to expect when I picked up The Voice of the Muse. I'm so glad I did. I think every aspiring writer should add this book to their library. I haven't checked out the meditation CD he's released, but I fully intend to. Thank you Mr. Gerson for providing the writing community with such a complete, touching perspective on the subject of writing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Mark David Gerson, author of the award-winning visionary novel, The Moon Quest, shares his secrets as a creative writer in this phenomenal guide to overcoming writer¿s block and unleashing your creative potential. Gerson offers numerous helpful tips, processes and visualizations to get the right words down on the page and to make those words flow without struggle. As a creative writing instructor for over fifteen years, Gerson shares the writing techniques he teaches in his popular seminars, and which have made him an award- winning writer. He includes numerous visualizations 'also available on a CD' to encourage people to unlock their creative potential. Gerson tells us not to worry about what we are writing but simply to keep writing even if all we can write is ¿I don¿t know what to write¿ over and over. The important thing is to keep the pen moving. While some of Gerson¿s techniques are commonplace in creative writing courses, what he excels at is encouraging the writer to believe the book desired can be written. In fact, Gerson believes that book already exists and the writer simply needs to learn how to relax and stop the resistance that is preventing those words from getting onto the page. Gerson analyzes in depth the real reason for writer¿s block, how to overcome it, and how to channel that resistance into energy that leads to words on paper. The book¿s numerous short essays remind us to listen to our voices, to acknowledge that the story and characters know where they want to go, and that there are no perfect rules but that you can write however you want and it will be perfect for you.Was this review helpful?
