Written by psychologist and creativity coach, Eric Maisel, A Writer's Paris is as much a meditation on living life and being alive as it is about coming to Paris to write. And also about not being in Paris to write.
As I type this, it's been about six weeks since I left Paris and I'm only beginning to shake off my post holiday blues. This is what Maisel says about writing about Paris when one is NOT in Paris:
“…access the Paris already inside of you…There is a Paris-of-the-mind made up of a thousand stories, a million images communicated in books and movies. It is available to you right now…I have Paris even when I’m not there. But when I’m there, it’s hard to leave her”.
