The Right to Write

An Invitation And Initiation Into The Writing Life

By Julia Cameron

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.
