Book Review: Ensouling Language by Stephen Buhner
If you're a writer of nonfiction or fiction, Ensouling Language is an essential must read book on the art of writing. While the author's focus is on non-fiction, the insights he shares can be applied to fiction. As I read this book and tried the exercises, it really helped me look at my writing from a different, deeper perspective. I started focusing on the spirit of the writing, the rhythm of the words and punctuation of the writing, and the intangible experience that could occur in writing if one is willing to trust the writing and let it happen. I can't recommend this book enough to my fellow writers or anyone interested in language and how to work with it.
