Product Details


“Practical, accessible, and motivational.”—The <st1:state w:st=”on”> <st1:place w:st=”on”>Washington</st1:place> </st1:state> Post

“In this out-of-the-box handbook for aspiring writers, [Herring] displays her ability to wed spirituality and creativity in vivid and surprising ways.”—Spirituality & Practice 

“A worthwhile and motivating read for all writers. Those who enjoy Julia Cameron’s (The Artist’s Way, etc.) holistic approach should similarly like Herring’s work.”—Library Journal

“A terrific writing companion, reminding me of Anne Lamott’s Bird By Bird and Natalie Goldberg’s books on writing.  Herring’s advanced degrees in both creative writing and psychology give her just the right perspective for a book on motivating writers and making the most of one’s writing life. The Writing Warrior fulfills its promise in offering discovery and courage.”—Seattle Post-Intelligencer blogger, The Writer’s Block 

“This guide gives readers the confidence to share their true voices with the world without hesitation. Herring maintains a personable, friendly tone.”—ForeWord Reviews 

“The practice is exquisitely clear; breathe and write. This book is an excellent guide and a catalyst for that deep work, and a wise companion for the writer’s journey.”—<st1:place w:st=”on”>SARK</st1:place>, author and artist of Fabulous Friendship Festival

“Laraine Herring takes you on a journey toward wholeness as a writer—she not only explores every aspect of the writing process; she also invites you to explore every aspect of your writing self—body, mind, and spirit. Anyone who writes—or wants to—will find this book as essential and inspiring as breath.”—Gayle Brandeis, author of Fruitflesh: Seeds of Inspiration for Women Who Write

“I’ve read piles of how-to books for writers. This one stands out from the rest. Just as martial arts training is about a way of life as much or more than a way of self-defense, this book is about a way of thinking as much or more than a way of writing. One way to tell that I’ve been engaged with a book is the number of sticky flags bristling from the edges. This book has a lot of flags.”—Story Circle Book Reviews
