9781614293521: The Mindful Writer

Find inspiration and insight on writing as a spiritual practice through astute quotes, thoughtful advice, and productive exercises on both mindfulness and craft.

This isn't your typical “how to write” book. Author Dinty W. Moore, a well-respected writing coach and teacher, thoughtfully illuminates the creative process: where writing and creativity originate, how mindfulness plays into work, how to cultivate good writing habits and grow as a person, and what it means to live a life dedicated to writing.

The Mindful Writer features bite-sized essays that will delight and inform not only writers, but also other artists, mediators and mindfulness practitioners. Built around heartening quotes from famous writers and thinkers, it is a resource that readers will turn to again and again for guidance and encouragement.

This edition includes a new introduction exploring the centrality of mindfulness in a writer's practice and craft as well as a selection of writing prompts to get you started on writing mindfully right away.

About the Author:

He has been published in Harper’s, the New York Times Magazine, Arts & Letters, the Gettysburg Review, Utne Reader, and many other venues. He’s also the author of The Accidental Buddhist: Mindfulness, Enlightenment, Sitting Still, and Dear Mister Essay Writer Guy and is a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship recipient. He lives in Athens, OH.

Review:

“Advice books for writers are a dime a dozen but Moore provides a fresh approach with this melding of Buddhist teachings and sage career and life lessons for those who devote their lives to the written word. This is a compact book of practical and philosophical truths for both novice and veteran writers.” (Publishers Weekly)

“There is something fresh and undeniably appealing about these bite-sized morsels, which expand the writer's experience to a broader, human one.” (The Writer Magazine)

“Small but powerful—a welcome addition to many writers’ desks, and an inspiring and supportive gift.” (ForeWord Reviews)

The Mindful Writer is a strong pick for anyone who wants to make sure they are writing with their heart in it, very much recommended.” (Midwest Book Reviews)

“Never be without it—as reference, as balm, as talisman; to refresh, encourage, comfort, and instruct. It's a trove of treasures. Professor Moore—insightful, funny, and true—cheers us on like the teacher and friend he is.” (The Gamut)
