Overview

The Mindful Writer: Noble Truths of the Writing Life by Dinty W. Moore

Going beyond the typical "how to write" book, The Mindful Writer illuminates the creative process: where writing and creativity originate, how mindfulness plays into work, how to cultivate good writing habits, how to grow as a writer and a person, and what it means to live a life dedicated to the craft of writing. There's not a writer alive, novice or master, who will not benefit from this book and fall in love with it. Cover to cover, this wise little book is riveting and delightful.

The Mindful Writer will be a book that readers will turn to again and again as a source inspiration, guidance, and support.

Love this part: "Why do we write? Yes, there are days that the answer might be as shallow as 'I want to see my name in the table of contents of The Paris Review' or 'I want to be one of those smart people interviewed in a magazine and then show that magazine to my older sisters who always implied that I was too dim-witted to accomplish anything.' But those reasons will not sustain a writer, certainly not through the inevitable rejection, the agonizing dry spells, the stinging eyeballs and tired brain cells that come halfway through a book project."
