"DeSilver opens a doorway that allows for spiritual and emotional growth, concepts not discussed in typical writing books." --Shelf Awareness

"In this gentle, lucid, erudite and compassionate guide, Albert Flynn DeSilver offers the wisdom and warmth of a true friend who has walked the path--one who reaches out a capable hand and offers it to the new writer, to the struggling writer, and says, 'Here, here, let me show you not only how to write, but how to live." --Dani Shapiro, author of Still Writing: The Perils and Pleasures of a Creative Life

"This book is full of wonderful insights, exercises, and some luscious prose. Luck for us, Albert Flynn DeSilver learned how to write as he was walking the spiritual path, a quality lacking in so many books on spirituality. This is an original, and a real good read." --Wes Nisker, author of Buddha's Nature: A Practical Guide to Discovering Your Place in the Cosmos

"This is a wonderful collection of insights, practices, writing exercises, and meditations to help you get words on the page, not just as an accomplishment, but as a way to discover who you really are." --Susan Piver, author of Start Here Now: An Open-Hearted Guide to the Path and Practice of Meditation

"Albert Flynn DeSilver is our funny, wise, and vulnerable tour guide on this magical year-long journey through the soul of writing. I recommend this book to seekers who want to tell their stories, writers who want to connect with their deepest truths, and anyone who wants to use words as a path to what lies beyond language." --Anne Cushman, author of Enlightenment for Idiots: A Novel
