Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within

Author Natalie Goldberg not only reads her classic book for readers; this audio version includes her comments on each chapter.  It describes her meditation and free-writing habits.

Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within
On Writing Well: An Informal Guide to Writing Non-fiction (Audio) 

Based on a course that William Zinsser taught at Yale and on his long experience as a free-lance writer, editor and teacher, the book has been praised by thousands of writers, journalists, teachers, students and grateful users as the best book on nonfiction writing they have ever read - even more useful and helpful than Strunk and White's The Element of Style.

On Writing by Stephen King (Audio) 

As his diehard fans know, King is a member of a writers-only rock 'n' roll band (Amy Tan is also a member), and this recording starts off with a sampling of their music. It may sound unsettling to some, but King quickly puts listeners at ease with his confident, candid and breezy tone. Here, King tells the story of his childhood and early influences, describes his development as a writer, offers extensive advice on technique (read: write tight and no bullshit) and finally recounts his well-known experience of being hit by a drunk driver while walking on a country road in 1999 and the role that his work has played in his rehabilitation.

Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
Anne Lamott  (Audio) 

Think you've got a book inside of you? Anne Lamott isn't afraid to help you let it out. She'll help you find your passion and your voice, beginning from the first really crummy draft to the peculiar letdown of publication. Readers will be reminded of the energizing books of writer Natalie Goldberg and will be seduced by Lamott's witty take on the reality of a writer's life, which has little to do with literary parties and a lot to do with jealousy, writer's block and going for broke with each paragraph. Marvelously wise and best of all, great reading.
