Read. Write Reflect. by Monica Bhide - coming soon

(Bodes Well Publishing, December 2017)

“How do I write the great book that’s inside me, dying to get out?” This is a question that Monica has been asked thousands of times when speaking everywhere from the Smithsonian to leading blogging conferences to Les Dames d’Escoffier, from London to Dubai to Washington, DC.

There’s no boilerplate or blueprint for being a successful creative artist. But Monica, through her decade of writing and teaching, has formulated easy-to-follow principles to help you unleash your creativity, whether it be writing a book, painting a canvas, or composing a musical opus. Read. Write. Reflect. will show you how to face your fears, shoot down your demons, get yourself started, and follow through with persistence until you complete your creative project. Be still. Believe. Persevere.

Monica uses stories and anecdotes as reflecting ponds to elucidate these basic actions that will set you on YOUR path to creativity. She guides you to the place where YOU make the commitment to apply these ideas daily to get your work out into the world. Read. Write. Reflect. is a guide to, in Monica’s words, “being led by your dreams, not your demons.” You can’t wait for inspiration. Don’t hang around expecting your muse to show up. Don’t sit and hope for someone to discover you.

Use the tools in this book to understand yourself and your motivations, to reflect, and then work and persevere to become a creative artist who produces art that is straight from the heart.


This book will be released December 2017 – purchasing information will be available soon!
