The Right to Write: An Invitation and Initiation Into the Writing Life
What if everything we've been taught about learning to write was wrong? In The Right to Write, Julia Cameron, award-winning author of such national bestsellers as The Artist's Way and The Vein of Gold, asserts that conventional writing wisdom would have you believe in a doctrine that is false and actually stifles creativity."It is human nature to write," Ms. Cameron declares as she systematically dismantles the mythology surrounding the writing life in our culture.She reveals the secrets of breaking loose from the grip of established thought processes and shows you how to unleash the wave of creativity within you that is starving to express itself.With the techniques and illustrative stories in The Right to Write, you'll learn how to make writing an easy, natural, intensely personal part of your life. Ms. Cameron's revolutionary instruction and examples include the details of her very own writing processes, the ones she uses to create her poetry, plays, essays, and novels. Her tools make writing a playful and practical, as well as profound, experience.If you're jumping into the writing life for the first time, or if you're already living it, the art and craft of writing will never be the same for you after you've heard The Right to Write.
