There are a handful of books that have made a huge difference in my life, and this is one of them. I doubt I would have this website up, submitted many of my works to publishers, or be as content as I am in my life had I not read this book and did the exercises in it.Reading this book slowed me down and gave me time to think and feel. I dug through my burried passions and dreams, faced some fears, and figured out a few things about myself. Through writing, a part of me woke up. It’s a lifelong process, of course, but this book gave me nice boost in the right direction.
Zipping through the text is easy because it’s great reading. But, like anything, if you really want to see some change in your life, it’s going to take some time and effort. Just like we can’t turn into a superhunk or wonderbabe by going to the gym for three days, we have to do more than read the book. If you really want to tap in to your creative power, follow the instructions and read one chapter a week while doing the writing assignments.
