About the book:

For Rosemary Daniell, writing is an obsession, a turn-on, a healing process, and a vision quest. A highly sexed, somewhat New Age-y Southerner with what she would call a "healthy arrogance," Daniell hadn't heard of T. S. Eliot until she was 23 years old. In The Woman Who Spilled Words All over Herself, we learn about Daniell's evolution as a writer, her experiences teaching writing in schools and prisons, her practical and inspirational advice for writers, and the writing workshops for women (and a few men) that she has been running out of her home for more than 15 years. These writing groups are what families should be: communities that value honesty, support, stimulation, and fattening foods. Most useful here, in addition to learning the indispensability of a good writing support group, are the writing exercises, or "exorcises," at the back of the book. There's also a collection of rich Southern recipes just right for beckoning the muse.
