What if everything we have been taught about learning to write was wrong? In The Right to Write , Julia Cameron 's most revolutionary book, the author of the bestselling self-help guide The Artist's Way , asserts that conventional writing wisdom would have you believe in a false doctrine that stifles creativity. With the techniques and anecdotes in The Right to Write , readers learn to make writing a natural, intensely personal part of life. Cameron's instruction and examples include the details of the writing processes she uses to create her own bestselling books. She makes writing a playful and realistic as well as a reflective event. Anyone jumping into the writing life for the first time and those already living it will discover the art of writing is never the same after reading The Right to Write .

Right to Write served as a great jump start and encouragement for me. I wasn't too crazy about the chapters on channeling and E.S.P.; so I either browsed and gleaned or skipped.

Each chapter offers an assignment; I completed almost all of them. The value of any book is in the "doing;" the assignments served me well.

Whether we have an audience of one or millions, we have a right to write and a right to enjoy it.
