    more from this reviewer

    A great gift for any of the writers in your life

    The Right to Write is a great all-purpose writing book. It's perfect for a number of writers: those who are new to writing; those who are interested in writing but perhaps intimidated by the thought of putting pen to paper; those who've been writing awhile but find themselves blocked; even those who just want to put a little playfulness back into the work of the writing they already do. In The Right to Write, Julia Cameron offers several short insights into a writer's lifestyle, each accompanied by an exercise. Some may appeal to the reader, some may not, but the goal is to help writers---at whatever stage of their writer's life they may be---find strength, confidence, and joy in their writing.

    Excellent

    Julia Cameron knows of what she writes! She has a special way with words that heal and inspire readers to keep writing! You can't just read this book without writing. Julia's warm wit, candor and simple message: 'Just do it' teach us that writing can be done anytime, anyplace. She also throws in some jewels of her own poetry. In a word: Brilliant.

    Wonderful Book!

    I read it through without doing the exercises just for the enjoyment. Her writing is clear, heartfelt and engaging, and a boost to me as a novice. I feel sure I'll be using her prompts, as they are quite doable. I liked it even more than The Artist's Way.

    Excellent for those serious about writing!

    This was an excellent resource - it opened my eyes to new ways of looking at and approaching the writing process. I got tired of reading about how hard writing is and how impossible it is to get published - this book is the complete opposite. I had already started reading other authors that talked about the joy of the writing process, and Cameron's book was an excellent addition to my collection. I really have started to enjoy her morning pages and I have learned to relax and enjoy the process instead of agonizing over every writing choice I make. I would definitely recommend this to all writers.
