WORDS ON A WIRE: Natalie Goldberg (extended)
Daniel & Ben talk with Natalie Goldberg, an influential author of books on writing. Her latest is "The True Secrets of Writing." Goldberg talks about the "True Secrets Retreats" she holds in Taos, New Mexico, which inspire writers to sit, walk, and write. Her philosophy of writing is very Zen and spiritual, and she encourages writers to just write and to "get out of the way" to allow the creative process to take place without the interference of discursive thinking. In this online extended interview, Goldberg talks more on her writing workshops and how she ended up in New Mexico after starting out in New York.
