Tools For Writers

Hi, everyone.

While working on a literary magazine is new to me, I thought I might share one of the tools I've used in the process of being a writer. If I could buy everyone on the planet just one book about creativity, it would be this one: The Artist's Way, by Julia Cameron. You can check it out here:

The book is focused on recovering creativity and getting artists of all sorts unblocked. Don't be thrown off by words like "spiritual" or "path" if they're not your thing - this is a book that can be adapted to any set of beliefs, thought processes, etc. I've found it to be the single most useful tool in getting my writing - and my life - together.

I would highly encourage anyone who is involved in any kind of creative work to give this book a try.

There, sales pitch done.

Wishing everyone a lovely Thanksgiving, long weekend, or the equivalent.

  1. I'm with you, Emily. I've gone back to Julia Cameron several time (Walking in this World, The Right to Write, etc.) Call me a creative recovery junkie ;-)
