-- CM Hamilton's "Writing Meditations: 36 Prompts to Inspire Meditative Writing
," encourages creativity through mindful, diligent concentration. Such exercises have been used constructively by Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin, Winston Churchill, Marcus Aurelius, and Abraham Lincoln, and research shows that a writing habit can have significant health benefits and increase productivity. The writing prompts described in the book include simple instructions for creating lists, generating creative ideas and solutions, making plans, and for reflection and personal improvement.
CM Hamilton says, "I described a few writing meditations in my previous book, but there are so many useful and different techniques that I realised I would need another book to do it justice. I have compiled many exercises into "Writing Meditations: 36 Prompts to Inspire Meditative Writing
