Yarn Along...

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading (though not at the same time!), and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?~

Dancing on the Head of a Pin...

Dancing on the Head of a Pen by Robert Benson is an absolute gem.  As a writer I often get so overwhelmed with the logistics of it all I can do is quit.
But writing isn't about logistics.  It definitely plays a part and it has a time and place, but writing is about passion and heart.  For the writer, writing is about finding that place of peace with words that brings happiness to both the soul of the author, as well as to the reader.
Benson's wit and humor combined with his honesty makes this book not just a how to putting pen to paper, but instead about finding "your" personal flow with eloquence and ease.  His short concise tid bits take the how-to out of writing that can make it seem so daunting at times; and he makes it this beautiful process that anyone can be a part of.
It's simply beautiful.
I recieved this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review
