Ideas and Inspiration for Anyone Who Wants to Write

Two top writers explore the territory where spirituality and creativity intersect.

Starting at: $10.48

Details

Through their many bestselling books, Natalie Goldberg and Julia Cameron have done nothing less than deepen the way millions of us experience the art and practice of writing and creativity. Now with The Writing Life, Cameron and Goldberg join forces for the first time in this revealing dialogue that speaks to our common search for an everyday spirituality.

Join these two creative giants as they explode cherished misconceptions about who should write, and why they should do it, opening the door to the writer's world for everybody, not just a chosen few. Goldberg and Cameron take us inside their personal lives as committed writers and spiritual seekers, and explore the following questions: How can writing best be practiced? What is the difference between therapeutic writing and writing for publication? How do we conquer the twin dragons of mood and time? Is it dangerous or inspirational to dabble in different arts such as music, painting, and writing? How is addiction related to the writer's life?

Edgy, surprising, and useful for its hard-won advice, The Writing Life is an invitation to a life-transforming act that requires no more than a pen, some paper, and the will to get started.

Review for The Writing Life Review by Deborah C

Rating

This is a very inspiring message because even if I don't necessarily become a writer, the disciplines she suggests are leading me to such a deeper understanding of who I really am and what my path truly is that I've become more and more excited to write each day and learn more about myself/spirit.
