The Pen and the Bell is about how to achieve mindfulness and creative fulfillment in spite of long to-do lists. It's about gaining access to our deeper selves in the workaday world, and bringing forth this authentic self in our writing. With both meditative and writing exercises in each chapter, it will help you awaken your creative soul and find a more rewarding life.

"The Pen and the Bell: Mindful Writing in a Busy World is a needed reminder that to be fully alive and alert is a prerequisite to writing well. Brenda Miller and Holly Hughes are the perfect guides for helping us all slow down and see the world around us. What a wise, warm, wonderful book!"

~ Dinty W. Moore, author of The Mindful Writer

"Strictly speaking, this isn't a book-it's a beautiful, quiet path into the deep woods of contemplative practice through the medium of the written word." ~Roshi Norman Fisher, from the Foreword to The Pen and the Bell
