From the Publisher:

From the Publisher Writing Past Dark is a writing companion to reach for when you feel lost and want to regain access to the memories, images, and ideas inside you that are the fuel of strong writing. Combining personal narrative and other writers' experiences, Friedman explores a whole array of emotions and dilemmas writers face - envy, distraction, guilt, and writer's block - and shares the clues that set you free. Writing Past Dark is a comfort and resource for all writers.

From the Back Cover:

"Wise, practical, nurturing and confident, Bonnie Friedman will be a funny, hard-nosed friend for those fretting with the difficulties of trying to be healthy writers. Writing Past Dark is an excellent, necessary, wonderful book." -- RON HANSEN, author of Mariette in Ecstasy

"
Bonnie Friedman's Writing Past Dark is wise, heartfelt, beautifully written.  For anyone who has ever sat down to write a piece of imaginative prose, it will radiate." -- DAVID LEAVITT, author of Family Dancing and The Lost Language of Cranes
"This is a wonderfully wise book.  A guide to integrating the terrors of the creative process with the work and art of living a life.  I will insist that my students read it, but I also want my editors to read it, and I want my family and friends to read it, because Ms. Friedman brilliantly articulates so much that I have long since despaired of explaining." -- ROBB FORMAN DEW, author of Dale Loves Sophie to Death and Fortunate Lives
