- Description: "The first thing that comes to mind when I think about the writing life. . . I just think of space. Time to daydream. Time to notice things," says Natalie Goldberg, author of many beloved books on writing. Space, she explains, is inherently important to the author, allowing her to time to receive, reflect and simply be in the world. Watch Goldberg discuss her beliefs and philosophies in her beautiful town of Taos, New Mexico, in this new video from Open Road Integrated Media.
