    a friend of mine leant it to me. i thought it was pretty damn good, and photocopied a few pages (topics to write about, tofu something?). i still refer back to them when i feel a bit stuck as to what to write next. i would advise everyone interested in writing to go get it out of the library, its not taxing at all and its thoroughly enjoyable to complete.

    Greetings all, been lurking! Pardon me for breaking in, but I have read Goldberg's book . . . several times. No classic writing book, more about the emotional, mental aspect. Really makes one want to run to the Journal to record some profound thoughts. Course, when there . . . the muses leave.

    Drat and Damnation!!

    I've been using Writing Down the Bones in my novel. If doing a journal doesn't work for you then write poetry or some form of prose. You'll probably find that if you go through your journals you'll find poems and prose that has written itself.
