Description: Natalie Goldberg's books have inspired hundreds of thousands of people to begin a writing practice to release their wild minds. Now she shows us how to direct that raw energy into stories, essays, poems, novels, and memoirs.

From her provocative opening -- "I have not seen writing lead to happiness in my friends' lives" -- to the deeply felt affirmation of the final pages, Natalie's book conveys like no other the challenges and mysteries of the writer's craft. With compassion and humor, she explores such questions as: What is structure, and how can you find the right shape for your work? What are the pitfalls of writing about personal experience? How can you develop plot and character? What can you learn from reading other writers, and what must you discover for yourself? How can you get the most out of writing workshops or working with an editor?

Above all, she demonstrates how to hold steady in the fires of self-doubt and rejection, and how to overcome "that thin constant writer's anxiety". Like all her books, "Thunder and Lightning" is a generous education in the daily realities of writing, and -- even more -- in living a deeper, fully alive life.
