Delia's Book

Delia's Book: Guidance for Cancer Healing Delia's Book: Guidance for Cancer Healing by Catherine Anne Held

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Anyone facing cancer, or any life threatening illness, will benefit from this clear, concise, tenderly written book. Delia was a medical doctor, wife, mother and teacher with a six year old son when she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and given two years to live. She lived for twelve more years, long enough to see her son graduate from high school. Written by her close friend and colleague, Dr. Catherine Held, Delia's story is woven through a narrative that offers readers insight into what allowed Delia to survive beyond all expectations. It offers lessons learned from Delia about living with cancer and terminal illness. Most of all it offers practical tips and techniques that can help increase our own capacity for self-healing and navigating the medical system.

No Plot, No Problem

Book Review: No Plot, No Problem by Chris Baty (2004)

This book has a high octane pace that laces solid writing advice with engaging humor and wit. It explains his NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) program and the benefits of writing at a white hot pace without regard for quality, just quantity. Sounds just whacky enough to read.

I met him recently at a local writer's group. He's a strong showman, very entertaining. You will not be bored. Plus there is merit to his program. It may not be for everyone but anything that purports to get that inner critic out of the way is definitely worth exploring.
