Twelve years in the making, Breathing the Page: Reading the Act of Writing is a must-read for students of creative writing. This collection is comprised of two sets of twelve essays each. "Materials" reflects on the history and animate nature of the objects we use in the act of writing, from computers, to pens and pencils, right down to paper. Warland subverts our assumptions about these 'tools' by making the case that our materials are also our collaborators. 'Concepts' investigates, names, and addresses the powerful forces at work beneath the language of craft. Warland shows that what ultimately determines whether a piece of writing succeeds or flounders is a writer's ability to be humbled, overcome, or guided by these forces.

I am pretty good at stealth. In hunting, I can climb trees easily to get squirrels or birds. In fighting, I can fight anywhere, in trees, in brambles, in water, on a cliff, anywhere. I need some help in blanacing when I'm fighting. I can balance on branches, but I'm not good with balance during a fight.
Trustpaw is best at fighting and stealth, and Im best at healing and sensing. ~Trustpaw and Silverstreak
