#NaPoWriMo day 5

A book on kindle,
I cannot
find. Steering the craft. 

.

Usually the prompt is there when I wake. Today it was not and it is a big day of work ahead followed by Jersey Boys tonight 🙂 very excited!

So I browsed through napowrimo.net links and I browsed through my twitter feed of poets and authors and Kate Forsyth came up with this gem of a conversation starter. To which I replied Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way. I’ve tried many different creative books, but this is the one that’s got me really writing again and reading and learning about writing. There was also the Desire Map by Danielle La Porte, which I loved, but The Artist’s Way has been more insightful for me, I think I’ve taken much more time with it, dug deeper. 

I might come back to a review of these and other books I’ve been reading in another post. Suffice to say, though I’d heard of Ursula Le Guin’s book, Steering the craft, I had forgotten it – and now I can’t find it on Kindle!! 

There is a quiet glee that comes with that realisation. Now I have no excuse. I must have it. So I must find a print copy somewhere. Library might work, but I’m gypsy wandering in another country. Which means I get a few tourist hours browsing a second hand bookstore. Or even splashing out on a new copy 🙂 Excitement!!
