Sinopsis:

What if everything we have been taught about learning to write were wrong? In The Right to Write, Julia Cameron's most revolutionary book, the 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 that stifles creativity. "It is human nature to write!" Cameron declares as she systematically dismantles the mythology surrounding the

writing life in our culture. Instead of driving people away from what they desire most, she reveals the secrets of breaking loose from the grip of established thought processes. She illustrates how to unleash within each of us a wave of creativity striving to express itself. With the techniques and illustrative stories in The Right to Write, readers are shown how to make writing a natural, intensely personal part of life. Cameron's instruction and examples include the details of her very own writing processes while creating her own bestselling books. Cameron's tools make writing a playful and practical as well as profound experience. For those jumping into the writing life for the first time and for those already living it, the art of writing will never be the same after reading The Right to Write. It is a provocative, thoughtful, and exciting book that readers will return to again and again, as they bear witness to the sheer unadulterated joy of putting words to the page.

Review:

Writing, for Julia Cameron, is neither solely vocation nor avocation: it is a way of life. It comes first thing in the morning, while the horses are waiting to be fed; it happens at the kitchen counter, while the onions are sautéing; it takes place on "dates" at café tables shared with likeminded friends; it unfurls in the mind as the '65 pickup "bucks over the rutted dirt roads like a stiff-legged bronco." The more than 40 brief personal essays that make up The Right to Write are an unyielding affirmation of the writing life and a denigration of all that gets in the way: busy schedules, procrastination, insecurity, lack of writing space, a day job--you get the point. Cameron's commonsense advice is liberating to anyone who has felt hampered by making a big deal out of writing (this "tends to make writing difficult. Keeping writing casual tends to keep it possible"), by not having the time to write ("Get aggressive. Steal time"), or the like. If you find a spirit that compares writing to revelation, prayer, and Zen pursuits, that might just attribute misguided communication to Mercury retrograde simpatico, then you will find much to embrace here. And you will never, never again dream of waiting for that commitment-free sabbatical in the south of France to get your writing project under way. --Jane Steinberg
