Write for Your Lives: Inspire Your Creative Writing with Buddhist Wisdom
This practical guide to successful creative writing not only helps you put words on paper, it explains how to achieve optimal productivity and enjoyment throughout the process. Joseph Sestito’s unique approach combines cognitive behavioral therapy and Buddhist spiritual strategies that can liberate people from procrastination, anxiety, depression, guilt, and other self-defeating emotions. Step by step, he shows would-be authors how to develop a concept for a manuscript, create a successful book proposal, overcome writer’s block, bring the project to fruition, and present it to authors and agents. Lively practical exercises and meditations are interspersed throughout.

Well, here's the thing ... this book actually ended up being more about Buddhism than about writing. I'd say probably 20-25% (writing) to 75-80% (Buddhism). Now, I'm not knocking the general ideologies presented in the book, but I don't think this work should be viewed as a book 'about writing' (or even really advertised as such). Disappointed.

More of a guide to spiritual writing than anything else. Its a book that's meant to teach a better outlook and how not to write rubbish and getting out of writer's block. An interesting read, but didn't provide any new concepts about writing.
