Praise for 
Dancing on the Head of a Pen
“Robert Benson’s
Dancing on the Head of a Pen
 is a gem. It is  wise, witty, and inspiring—a trifecta seldom achieved by a book on the writing life.

 best-selling author of
Plot & Structure
“With deceptive simplicity and a kind of almost-seductive easiness in his voice, Robert Benson lays open before us the filigreed mystique of the writing life in all its beauty, its un-mitigated angst, and its inescapable vocation. This one is a classic.”

“I needed this book. And I need to read it againand prob-ably again. Thank goodness, it’s a pure delight to read. En-couraging, honest, practical, and important. If you’re a  writeror have any aspirations to become one—Robert Bensons words will resonate deeply within you. I will highly recommend this to all my writer friends and even the writer friends I haven’t yet met.”

“There is little more enjoyable for a writer than to read about the craft, especially when the book is fashioned with the grace and style of Robert Benson’s prose. You don’t even have to be a writer to savor this delicacy. Just do yourself a favor and settle in for a treat that goes down like dessert but is also full of nutrition. I read everything I can find on writ-ing, and I loved this.”

“I love reading and spending time with what Robert Benson  writes. I think it is because his words and God’s Spirit meet and dance on each page. In this book Benson generously shares how writing becomes art.
Dancing on the Head of a Pen
 is direction for struggling writers and balm for the bruised writer’s heart.”
