Book Review: Writing the Fire

iconI just finished reading this book this morning, and I'd like to recommend it to anyone who writes and is also familiar with yoga. Written by a yoga practitioner, Writing the Fire offers a variety of exercises rooted in the yogic tradition to help unleash creativity, still the mind, and improve the quality of your writing practice.

If you're not into yoga, or feel that a spiritual practice just isn't your thing, much of this book won't make much sense, and will probably make you roll your eyes a lot. But if you benefit from the integration of spirituality into your regular routine, this book will give you several new ways of looking at how your creativity works, how it ebbs and flows, and ways to harness a steadier, more reliable flow of ideas and production.
