Book summary

Much attention has been paid by experts to the raw creative process. But, says Bonni Goldberg, to be fulfilled as a writer, you have to do more than write. How do you get ideas? How do you shape those ideas as creatively as possible? And how can you share your work with others once you've created it? The answers to these questions can be found through attending to three key aspects of writing that often get short shrift: 1) Percolation: what takes place before a first draft is written; 2) Revision: the writer's role after the initial draft; and 3) Going Public: the writer's mission once the writing is done.

In Beyond the Words, Goldberg presents anecdotes, essays, examples, and exercises to help writers realize and maintain balance, flow, and health in their work by being mindful of the whole writing process. Supplying tools for using creativity through and beyond a first draft, she offers motives, choices, and encouragement for writers to become more passionate and grounded in their writing lives. [via]
