Julia Cameron explores writing as a natural and human activity that helps us explore our selves and our world.  The book has many insights and tools to help all writers.

Julia Cameron is a prolific writer across many genres and is well known for her promotion of creativity through The Artist's Way and other resources.  The Right to Write provides many personal insights into the writing process and the writing life.  Each chapter is a short essay on a particular theme with initiation tools at the end to help explore the ideas presented.  A nice personal touch is that Julia Cameron provides concrete descriptions of where she is as she is writing each essay.
