Dancing on the Head of a Pen

If you have ever wished you could write, wanted to get your story down on paper, or just wanted someone to read what you scribble then Dancing on the Head of a Pen by Robert Benson is the place to start. 

This is a fairly simple book to read; no in depth ways to get published, nor secret tips to becoming a great writer or artist. Robert is to the point in this book...just do it

I found this to be more of an encouragement than a "how to". And I liked that about this book. There are more than enough how to books on writing out there to last a lifetime but a book on "The Practice of a Writing Life" is just what the writer (wannabe) ordered.

I love the quotes throughout the book. I love how each chapter is short and direct which makes it easy to put down and pick up again when the timing is right. The thing I enjoyed most about this book is that it made me want to write. It doesn't make writing seem overly complicated. Hard, yes, complicated, no. 

A very encouraging book for anyone interested in writing, or any other artistic talent that has been on their "to do" list.

Disclaimer: This book was given to me by Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
