Here, Klauser (Writing on Both Sides of the Brain; Put Your Heart on Paper) instructs her readers to write down their most extravagant wishes and, merely by the act of recording them, make them come true. She claims that the writings themselves are so powerful that they will influence external circumstances. Eventually, however, she reveals that this wish-writing is neither magical nor miraculous. It requires practitioners not only to write their wishes but also to participate actively in achieving them. Her technique is intended to clarify goals, increase self-confidence, and dispel self-doubt, and she describes how it has dramatically improved her life and the lives of her friends and acquaintances. Her faith in the power of writing is evident in her work; readers who share her faith may benefit from her prescribed course of wish fulfillment. Recommended for all public libraries.

Half-way through the book, I set it down and started to do as it preached. I've always written down things too but not as systematically as I should. I've been a blogger, a writer, an author and so I've done the structured working but we're talking about personal journaling and being very specific about manifesting your goals through writing. To be totally honest, I'm not 100% sold on "The Secret" and the simple idea that ask and you shall receive. Perhaps that is the skeptical side of me. I feel that you have to do the work, take the actions and MAKE things happen, and YET, there is so much in this book that gives this another dimension.
I respect writing on so many levels that if you told me gold and diamonds would pop out from me writing about them, I might take you up on it ;) OK half kidding but there's no arguing with the immense and hidden powers of Writing Things Down. Writing is medicine; writing is therapy; writing is joy! If everyone of us wrote our way out of our frustrations and problems, there would be more joy and far less pain, but enough preaching about writing. This book takes you through the very specifics of how writing down what you want will lead to you getting it. It's not a straight path, and I love the zigzags along the way. For instance, if you're not getting it, and you're writing it down and doing the work, then something is stopping you; either you are not ready for it, or you are blocking it by something you are doing subconsciously, or you are not seeing that it has already happened to you in other ways.
You will find so many creative ways to enhance the writing down part. Klauser talks you through so many wonderful ideas to give you a complete system. Some of my favorites are the following:
- Writing through to resolution: This one is to help you get clarity if you feel stuck.
- Focusing on the Outcome: "Hold it in your mind that you want a pool" chapter. Staying encouraged.
- Stacking Goals, Raising the Bar: "A girl who has done X can definitely do this!" Thinking about a big achievement in your life and reminding yourself that you've gone for something bigger in the past.
There are lots and lots of stories of people that the author weaves in to make her point including experiences of herself, and in fact, there is about 80% story and 20% theory or context. This isn't my favorite style of writing but it worked well and it was done creatively. The stories were good.
She also gives you exercises relevant to your own writing at the end of each chapter, and if only for that reason, I would recommend getting a physical copy of this book, and this from a true Kindle-lover I assure you but physical books still have their place in this world.
Bottom line, if you are looking for a well-written piece of motivation to help you set and achieve your goals, this book is a great place to start.
