faith and writing
Robert Benson is a guide for people who don't know how to get from a blank page to a pile of pages called a book.
Our hunger is for words that evoke our deepest emotions, that name the wilderness in which we live—but not alone.
Karen Hering believes that writing is a way to tune into your inner voice and discover the relationship you have with whom or what you believe in.
I think and convey ideas more clearly at a desk with a pen in hand than I do on my feet in front of a group of listeners. That’s why books about writing and reading occupy much of my time.
I think that writing is therapeutic. I agree with the psychologist who said that creativity is the successful resolution of internal conflict. But when it comes to autobiography, I myself don’t want the beasts roaring around. It’s not that I’m suppressing them. I know who and what they are. But I think there’s something a bit self-indulgent in feeling that we can say absolutely everything. I think there are things that have happened in our lives that we have to accept and come to terms with, but I don’t think that we necessarily have to write about them.
