My Review
7 Minutes to Freedom is a book I didn't know I needed in my life until I finished reading it.
I have a very overactive brain. It never seems to shut off, and there are times where I wish I could just put all of my thoughts down on paper, whether they're memories/thoughts from the past, thoughts about life in general, story ideas, or some other thing. It seems that very time I try, though, that's when my brain decides it's going to "shut down" and make it hard for me to put words to paper. It's like a wall goes up and blocks me from getting those thoughts out and setting them free. 
After reading through this book, I've found that if I don't actually focus on the words, or even the thoughts, and just write, things seem to flow more easily. I'm not sure what about this book was different from a few of the other, similar books I've read pertaining to writing, but the advice in this one seemed to "break the dam" in my mind, if you will, and helped me find a method that actually works for me. 
I really liked the prompts that came along with each section. It helps focus the mind and get a start on putting the words/thoughts to paper. I've been wanting to start journaling and writing again this year, but I've been struggling for the last couple of months with figuring out how to even get myself started. 7 Minutes to Freedom has helped me come up with a plan, so I'm hoping that by taking the advice to heart and starting out slow, with any luck I'll be able to ease the burden of my overactive mind and maybe even finish one of the stories I've had an idea for recently. Fingers crossed!
If you're a writer, or someone looking to get into writing/journaling, definitely give 7 Minutes to Freedom a read. You're sure to find something within the pages to help get you started.
4.5 stars!

About The Author

Natalya is an award-winning writing and dissertation coach with over two decades of experience teaching writing. She has coached professional writers and university writers of all skill levels–students, staff, and faculty. Natalya currently runs Writing and Graduate Student Support at Ryerson University in Toronto, where she also teaches Writing for Wellness to staff and faculty and acts as a dissertation coach for graduate students.

Her passion is helping writers become more courageous, authentic, and kind to themselves. Through individual coaching, writing groups, and writing retreats, she has helped hundreds of writers to break through blocks and find inspiration, a more authentic voice, and a greater freedom in their writing and their life. Her doctoral research also focused on the intricacies of the writing process, exploring the relationship among the poetic, the feminine, and the sacred.

She lives in Toronto, Canada, and when she is not writing or meditating, she loves to play tennis, practice yoga, or sit by the water and cloud watch for hours. In her own writing practice, spanning three decades, she discovered that beliefs we have about our writing are not different from the beliefs we have about ourselves, so a new way of writing often translates into a new way of living. What was impossible becomes probable and even likely when we learn to write and live without fear.
