    One thought on “The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write”

    1. The hardest part about being a writer is accepting it. Even if you’ve been writing all your life, to actually step forward and allow yourself the freedom; even the indulgence, of calling yourself a writer, is not easy. Even after three published books, one of which was an award winning novel, I tend to shrug and dismiss my writing as an all-consuming hobby, rather than a vocation or career. Mark David Gerson isn’t having any of that. He’s adamant that not only am I a writer who can write c [...]

    4. As a writer, it is important to me to keep all of my projects on track. Sometimes, this feels impossible. In those moments, I pick up this book, which was written by one of my dear friends. It is an incredibly insightful read. While the subtitle is "Call to Write", I believe what is within can be used for almost any creative endeavor. Gerson writes with a calm, casual air, making this book an easy read, and quick reference. I am pleased to know him, and be able to share his knowledge with those [...]

    5. This is one of the best books I've ever read about the writing progress. So good I wish I'd written it, myself!

    6. I will recommend this book for anyone that is having a difficult time getting started writing. In a clear no nonsense approach, Mark walks the writer through his approach to writing.

    7. [Please note: I will also be posting this review on my profile under the user name 'Esofagus']In a review of a creative writing book I came across a while ago, one of the readers said that if he could learn even just one new/useful thing with every ‘writer’s manual’, the book had served its purpose.I have certainly learnt more than one thing from MDG’s ‘Voice of the Muse’ book and from its companion meditation CD (sold separately). But first, let me tell you what this book isn’t. [...]
