Review:

Write Free: Attracting the Creative Life

'Welcome fellow writer and artistic soul!' That's how co-author Jordan E. Rosenfeld starts the introduction to Write Free: Attracting the Creative Life, written together with Rebecca Lawton. Rosenfeld, a contributing editor to Writer's Digest and a book reviewer for KQED, among other things, goes on to write, 'You have the power of persuasion: the means to move, transform and reach those who come in contact with your words and your art.' Lawton, a geologist, river guide, writing guide and Sonoma author describes Write Free as a 'guide to allowing in your creativity.' The words Lawton and Rosenfeld spread across these pages are both deeply personal and inspirational. Write Free is a real account of how the two writers used the law of attraction to make their lives a mirror of their thoughts and feelings. The books describes the methods they used to achieve their desires and teaches us how to attract the creative life we want. Rosenfeld writes, 'Just as you create worlds, images, essays, and stories, you can create the artist's life you dream of with just as much pleasure and delight.' Part of the process, they emphasize, is understanding the importance of clearing the clutter. 'Keep only those entities that serve you now,' they write, asking us to look at the material possessions filling our lives and decide if they serve us, if they bring out good feelings or feelings of disappointment and failure. Write Free insists that we get in touch with our feelings, focus on what we want and recognize that through writing, we can make space for our creative life and desires. -- Christopher Oscar --Sonoma magazine, spring 2008

Whether you're an aspiring writer or a published author, this timeless, gracefully written book will go a long way in helping you get the recognition and rewards you deserve. --Michael Larsen, agent, Larsen-Pomada Literary Agents, and author of How to Write a Book Proposal

Write Free is a rare book that inspires, delights, and motivates. The tools offered give artists not only the opportunity to explore, discover, and identify their dreams, but also provides gentle, yet powerful means to take responsibility for fulfilling those dreams. I loved it! --Charlotte Gullick, author of By Way of Water
