The Writing Diet

Vein of Gold
Julia Cameron

Experts agree: often we choose to eat not because we are hungry, but because we are bored, sad, frustrated, or else we are happy and in the mood to celebrate with treats. In other words, emotions can drive us to overeat. What if, instead of turning to food, we could identify those underlying feelings and express them in a healthy, positive way? What if, in doing so, we could also increase our creativity, get in touch with our authentic selves, and discover our true artistic abilities? In her new book The Writing Diet: Write Yourself Right-Size, artist and bestselling creativity mentor Julia Cameron promises just that.
