Sparking Creativity ...


I wanted to start sharing the books that have and continue to inspire me ... I started reading WILD MIND by Natalie Goldberg over the Summer and I find myself going back to it ... To do the exercises I did not fully complete when I was reading the book. I love how she has you "try" different ways of writing ... Write about that Summer Vacation long ago, but make things up - Then go back and re-write it with only the truth ... Prompts like this spark my creativity!

She goes to tell us about "Monkey Mind", that little voice that holds us back from placing on the page what we truly want to write. I have enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to anyone seeking the inner tools to awaken your writing spirit!

What book have you enjoyed lately that has sparked a creative nerve in you?
