I didn’t know it was a diet book…

26 Mar

Welcome to my first book review! I picked up THE WRITING DIET by Julia Cameron several months ago and stuck it in my TBR pile. When I finally read it, I found out that it wasn’t exactly what I thought it was. Clearly, I didn’t actually read the title when I picked it up! This book is so much more than a diet book. Cameron gives us some wonderful writing exercises that truly help get your creative juices flowing. Some of the exercises were corny, but I have no doubt that they have seriously helped some people unblock their creativity. I will definitely be referring to some of these exercises in the future. She gives some especially good advice about journaling and free writing. Even if you’re not looking for a diet book, if you feel a little creatively stifled, no matter what form your creativity takes, I encourage you to check out THE WRITING DIET.
