Writing Your Way – My New Book!
Finding quiet moments to explore life’s deeper questions can be challenging.
“Renée Hartleib’s incredibly gentle and thoughtful approach to encouraging creativity is spellbinding. Beyond that, this book is far more than a quest of creativity, rather it’s a deep and honest work of art. It is vulnerable and powerful. The author shares thoughtful insights, creates profound metaphors, and asks important questions which will fundamentally alter your perception of the life you are living. Get ready for laughter, tears, and some truly amazing revelations.”

“Renée Hartleib takes us on an insightful journey of introspection and expression. Each chapter seems to land exactly where it should. Her gentle nudge will reveal your truths – the ones you’re ready to hear. Inspiring, this book is way up there with Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird, Stephen King’s On Writing, and Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down The Bones. After you’ve gifted Renée’s gem to yourself you’ll want to gift it to all those you love.”
Jane Gutman, Haifa, Israel
“With personal stories from a life of inner work, Renée guides the reader through 40 days of writing prompts. Each day is easy to digest and requires 20 – 30 minutes to complete the reading and writing. What a gift to oneself to dive deeply into this work! Renée’s writing is full of vulnerability and meaning which inspires the creative within each of us. My life and path have been transformed by this beautiful book!”
Lovena Harvey, British Columbia, Canada
“As a truth seeker always looking for ways of connecting with myself so I can connect with others, I found Renée Hartleib’s 40-day path to be revolutionary. The carving out of time for myself, combined with her surprising and challenging prompts, laid a track for me to really connect with the writer in me. As a somatics practitioner always looking for ways into greater presence in my body, I was surprised to find that connecting with my mind through writing allowed me to be more present to myself in my body at the same time. This is a true gem!”
Danielle Bezaire, New Mexico, USA
“Forty days later, I am grateful beyond words. Renée doesn’t lecture or prescribe. She doesn’t sound like a therapist, a fitness coach, or that keener with her hand up at the front of the class and all the answers. Her writing is like the voice of a friend you’ve known for years and trust implicitly. With honesty, warmth, and generosity, she shares her experience and experiences, good and bad, and primes your creative pump with carefully chosen prompts. You will laugh and you will probably cry.”
Paddy Muir, Nova Scotia, Canada
“Writing Your Way is a gift of encouragement! With a gentle voice, Renée reminds you to keep going and to keep pursuing your writing dreams. I love the short, power-packed daily prompts to get right into the writing rhythm. If you are longing to develop a consistent, nurturing routine for writing, Renée’s book is the perfect companion. I’m grateful for the light and love she shares so beautifully in this worthwhile and encouraging book.”
Cara L. McLauchlan, North Carolina, USA
“Fans of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic, Cheryl Strayed’s Wild, and Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way will love Writing Your Way. Renée Hartleib invites readers to make time for quiet reflection and writing, promising that even just a few minutes a day of listening to “the inner, truest version of you” can be utterly transformative. Each chapter begins with an inspirational quotation, followed by compelling stories from Hartleib’s own creative journey, and concise, clear writing prompts designed to help readers explore their own lives, past and present, and their dreams of renewal and transformation for the future. A beautiful, powerful book, Writing Your Way, is definitely one to add to your collection.”
Sarah Emsley, Nova Scotia, Canada
“This sweet writing guide was a gentle companion that didn’t instruct me ‘how to’ or ‘just to’ write, but instead, stuck with me through the thick and thin of a daily practice and offered prompts to get me thinking about many aspects of life. A thought-provoking warmup for the synovial fluids of my writing joints, Writing Your Way was a kind and constant voice that accompanied me, helping me discern what intrigues me most and explore how and why I want to write. Renée’s voice comes through loud and clear as a sage and faithful guide. The exercises solicit truth-telling, leading me to ponder and then write with clarity, from the inside out.”
Maggie MacDonald, Nova Scotia, Canada
