Schrijven vanuit je hart. 60 Inspiratiekaarten. Door: Natalie Goldberg.

Schrijven vanuit je hart (het boek) leerde ik kennen door Geertje Couwenbergs Zin. Voor dat boek en haar schrijven an sich haalde zij inspiratie bij Goldbergs bijbel: Schrijven vanuit je hart. Ik verslond Zin, daarna werd ik verliefd op Schrijven vanuit je hart. En nu liet ik me verleiden door de Inspiratiekaarten.

Waar het boek theorie en tips aanreikt zetten de kaarten je direct tot schrijven aan. Er zijn 60 kaarten; op de voorkant vind je een concrete opdracht, op de achterkant staat wat extra informatie, wat meer tips. Soms krijg je een aanzet tot, dan weer een te beantwoorden vraag. Je wordt gevraagd naar het haar van je moeder, wat je blij maakt, welk onrecht jij ziet… Soms staat er gewoon een zin uit een boek dat je moet inspireren,… alles kan.

Mij moet je al lang niet meer overtuigen van het nut van (elke dag) schrijven maar vaak heb ik geen inspiratie, blijf ik in meer van hetzelfde steken. Deze kaarten gaan me helpen breder en dieper te schrijven, mijn blik te verruimen én te versmallen. Zin in om ze allemaal te doen. En benieuwd waar ze me gaan brengen.

Ideaal voor beginnende journallers, geroutineerde schrijvers die wel wat opschudding kunnen gebruiken en mensen die het al lang opgegeven hebben wegens inspiratieloos. Schrijf! Maak jezelf blij. Het doosje ziet er tof uit, een extra pluspunt. Minder mensen aan de pillen, meer aan de kaarten zou ik zeggen ;)

This book was filled with lots of good suggestions for practicing writing. Even if one has no interest in writing memoir, her questions, ideas, and assignments can bring long forgotten memories to mind.

Natalie Goldberg has become a famous name among modern teachers of writing. In this short audiobook, she focuses on her process of writing memoirs. She talks about the delicate process of writing from memories and bringing out essential details that eventually form a narrative structure. The audiobook, narrated by the author, is incredibly short but power-packed at around 150 minutes.

Goldberg’s main mode is to start writing first and then piece it together later. Along the way, she includes numerous writing prompts to bring out recollections with maximal energy behind them. As a good teacher, she is incredibly encouraging and gracious while still firm in her guidance. For those who aspire to leave a set of memories in print – for humanity or just for family – this short audiobook provides excellent prodding to get started.… (mais)

Natalie Goldberg’s guide for writers seeks to free authors to engage their own minds in writing. Using Zen Buddhism as a template, she describes the practice of writing as similar to meditation in that an author engages her/his own mind. She seeks to free writers from a persistent “inner critic” who chatters doubts, hangups, and insecurities. She labels this the “monkey mind” in contrast to a “creative mind.” As she does in writing seminars, she even proscribes a set duration of writing each day, much like one would engage in prayer or meditation.

Goldberg herself comes from a non-practicing Jewish background. She had no strong educational awards to fall back on but became inspired in the feminist movement to do something noteworthy. She eventually gained a Buddhist mentor whose influence is all over this book and her life. She even re-engaged with Judaic spiritual rhythms.

She speaks in very earthy tones with strong metaphors, which increases reader engagement with the book. This audiobook contains the original text of her book along with interviews about each chapter done over a decade later. Goldberg is sometimes surprised at her confidence and at other times, critiques her younger self. This added dynamic makes the audiobook even more interesting.

Obviously, this book is intended primarily for authors and writing professionals. However, anyone who wants a more transparent relationship with the writing process, whether in business emails or even with computer code (my trade), can benefit from Goldberg’s advice. She simply cautions writers to tone down their self-criticism and actually get down to the process of honest writing. Most readers will engage better with what the author finds most meaningful and relatable. Self-actualization is a key part of the process. This perspective can engage with better writing and better living in 2023 as well as it originally did in the 1980s.
