Finished Writing Down the Bones this morning. I’ve moved on to Bonni Goldberg’s Room to Write. I’ve browsed through it before (much like I had WDTB) but haven’t read it start to finish. I have far too many great books on the writing craft that have been sitting on my shelves unread. Off the top of my head:
Write It Down, Make It Happen
Damn! Why Didn’t I Write That?
The Well-Fed Writer
The Artist’s Way
Vein of Gold
The Sound of Paper
God Is No Laughing Matter
The Creative Call (I think I lent this one out)
You Can Write a Column
The Everything Book of Creative Writing (or something like that)
Writing From the Heart
When Memory Speaks
How to Write the Story of Your Life
Lists to Live By
Dancing Corn Dogs In the Night
The Pocket Muse
Families Writing
and those are just the ones that popped into my head. I know there are probably three times that many if not more. No wonder bookcases are taking over the house.

I didn’t realize how much I had missed having time to write until Natalie Goldberg inspired me to get the pen (fingers) moving again. I found myself not wanting to finish WDTB because I didn’t want it to end. I think she felt the same way when she finished writing it. I think I would’ve, too. I really like her writing style.
