Natalie Goldberg’s guide to the writing life begins on the first page with her rules for writing practice starting with: “Keep your hand moving.” The book goes on to relay numerous anecdotes, insights, lessons, and short writing exercise prompts gathered from over three decades of experience as a teacher of craft and meditation. “Trusting your own mind is essential for writing.
