Book Recommendation: For Writers – Mireille Guiliano

Fiction or Nonfiction:  Nonfiction

Type:  Restoring balance, quality, and pleasure

Author:  Mireille Guiliano

Title:  “French Women Don’t Get Fat”

Why:  I read “French Women Don’t Get Fat” to assist with health goals, but discovered the wisdom in this little book applied even more to writing goals.


  1. Thanks for the recommendation, Ashley! I’ll check it out. Hope 2012 brings you health, happiness and much success!

    • Thank you so much, Rhonda. What a lovely blessing. I hope for great health, happiness, and success for you this year. Cheers, Ashley

      • Thank you! 🙂

      • You’re so welcome, Rhonda. Cheers, Ashley

  2. I’ll have to take a look at it, Ashley. I thought it was a diet book.

    • Hi Louise, In recent months, the struggle to stick with writing goals is looking more like the struggle with diet and execise goals–all so negative. The reason I like this book for writers is that the approach puts pleasure back into the process. So technically, yes, this is a diet book, but it can also be used as a great approach to writing. Cheers, Ashley

  3. This sounds most interesting. I think I will have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation.

    • You’re very welcome, Billie Jo. I hope you find this different approach beneficial and fun. Cheers, Ashley
