Freewriting was advanced in Peter Elbow's Writing Without Teachers (1975), and has been popularised by Julia Cameron through her book, The Artist's Way (1992).
Natalie Goldberg combined the notion of freewriting with principles of Zen Buddhist meditation and developed "writing practice", described in books such as Writing Down the Bones (1986). Writing practice is different from freewriting encouraged in undergraduate and creative writing programs: writing practice encourages the writer to be aware of his or her thoughts throughout the writing practice, and may be an ends unto itself, rather than a means to produce a more polished piece later.
