The ancient oracle system of the I Ching has guided wisdom seekers for over 5,000 years. Now those seeking insights and motivation can take advantage of these ancient predictions, recast by writing professor Sarah Jane Sloane into suggestions for contemporary writers. Each of the I Ching’s sixty-four hexagrams, interpreted by Sloane from years of study and comparisons of over fifty translations, offers directions and comments about what the future will hold for the writer. In addition to this oracular system of advice, the book includes inspirational quotations, writing prompts, solutions to common writing problems, and a wonderful exploration of the creative process.
