it was amazing
Read in January, 2011

This book works for me as a New Year's writer's kick in the butt; here are the key items:

1/ Morning Pages (3 pages, long hand, every day); counter-point, shorter, less frequent Evening Page
2/ Narrative Time Line (your life in 5-year intervals, with a writing friend)
3/ Cups (filling in the NTL)
4/ Weekly Artist Date (for 2 & 3, you write together, across the table)
5/ 43 Initiation Tools (including "how tos" for all of the above)

Easy to read, keeps you hopping, I like her style. I feel she's been where I've been and has found ways to keep writing, which is what writers do, nothing about publishing and all that, down-to-earth on the value of writing, the rest is up to each of us...

Ilze She's added another tool (if you have a look at "Walking in this World"): A weekly walk.
