Writing from the Inside Out

Julia Cameron touches on wisdom in her books on living creatively. She wrote, “Writing is a valuable tool for integration. In order to ‘integrate’ our experiences, we must take them into account against the broader canvas of our life. We must slow down and recognize when currents of change, like movements in a symphony, are moving through us.” Writing for ourselves is as or more than important than writing for an audience. “When we write from the inside out rather than the outside in, when we write about what concerns us rather than about what we might sell, we often write so well and so persuasively that the market responds to our efforts.” This is what is meant when people say good writing will find a market.
