The Almost True Story of My Life
by Joseph Sutton
What is the writer's method? How does a writer get strings of inspired words from his mind onto the page? Not very damn well if you're Ben Halaby, filled with dedication but grappling with writer's block. Halaby stumbles across a book on creativity: Julia Cameron's The Artist Way. The basic tenet of Cameron's book is to write three pages non-stop first thing in the morning for 84 days.
Halaby heeds Cameron's advice. And what we see, as the words come gushing out of his pen and soul every morning, is not only the creative process in action, but we see a man turning into his old storytelling self again.
