'What a great book and what an achievement. I loved it. It's pithy (in a sharp way), at times funny and at times heart-breaking but always optimistic. Above all, it's inspirational.' --Bob Selden, bestselling author of What to Do When You Become the Boss

After a failed suicide attempt, author Hedley Derenzie decided rather than escaping life, she would write her way through it, every day for the next thirty-one days.

What started out as a simple yet challenging exercise soon turned into a life-changing adventure. It became an exploration of the creative process and what it means to find true fulfilment.

Write Way Home is a personal, engaging story about one writer's quest to navigate her way back from the brink with the help of a daily creative practice. Written in clear and simple language, it offers insights and practical suggestions to anyone who might be feeling stuck or lost and looking for a way out -- as in, a way back to life.

The right read at the right time

Loved this book. Hedley wryly and honestly shares her recovery from a suicide attempt by committing herself to a writing challenge, which any reader could easily translate to a challenge of their own. I discovered this book at exactly the right time in my own journey, too. It's an easy and enjoyable read.

An amazing, honest and direct revelation of self by an admirable woman. Reading her experiences helped me reflect on my own and the chapter summaries were pithy and wise.
