Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper


SARK's newest book, Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper: Gifting the World with Your Words and Stories and Creating the Time and Energy to Actually DO It is available today. [insert confetti and noise makers here - YIPEE!]


I had the pleasure of being in one of SARK's Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper workshops at Celebrate Your Life in 2005. It was an amazing workshop and I am so glad she wrote the book. I highly recommend both the book ~ and her workshops (I'm intending on the Big Sur workshop in November - at the Henry Miller Library! - yum!). I'd also love to get to one of the book tour events. That's right, I'm a groupie for SARK! :)


One thing I really like about Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper is, while it's the perfect book for someone who wants to write a book, it's not just a book full of "tips". In fact, "this book is for anyone who wants to write and share what's in their heart." It's full of games and exercises but also, as always, SARK shares herself throughout the book and you see yourself in her brave sharing. I especially love the story of her parents meeting and a peek at "how SARK books are made".


As SARK says, "write and share what's in your heart" ~ and I say, do it in whatever form inspires you - blogging, poetry, journals, books, rocks, etc. Just write!

I am also inspired by SARK's words and actions...and also had the pleasure of being in one of SARK's Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper workshops at Kripalu (May, 2008).

I saw your link from SARK's new online journal. How fun it must be to be listed as a link that inspires SARK.

I intend on purchasing this, but I wasn't as excited about it as others because I'm not a writer, per se. I'm glad to hear it's full of awesome stuff for folks who aren't necessarily interested in writing anything for anyone other then themselves.

I miss your mug, Dishmeister. xoxo
