5.0 out of 5 stars I have it near the bedside

I keept it near my bedside, it gives lots of useful advice and helps me through bumps, ups and down of the creative life.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for me
If you want to read the best ideas of Julia Cameron then skim through "The Artists Way". I have found the idea of using "Morning Notes" as a brain dump an excellent way of clearing my mind and of getting ideas down on paper. A lot of the other stuff is a bit dippy for my tastes though.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought another one for my daughter in law, hope she can love it and use it as I do,
I keept it near my bedside, it gives lots of useful advice and helps me through bumps, ups and down of the creative life.

It is the third edition, all revised, rewritten of Artists Way,

Richer experience, more personal also, and added advices too.

It is a book to read and do, not just go once through it.

This review is from: Finding Water: The Art of Perseverance (Hardcover)
If you want to read the best ideas of Julia Cameron then skim through "The Artists Way". I have found the idea of using "Morning Notes" as a brain dump an excellent way of clearing my mind and of getting ideas down on paper. A lot of the other stuff is a bit dippy for my tastes though.

I started to read Finding Water hoping for some valuable ideas about perseverance and how to achieve it. I just couldn't get on with this book and got very irked by the regular references to successful friends. Nothing that I found was of use in developing my perseverance and I gave up on it.

If you really must look into this book then borrow it from a library. You will be supporting a very valuable community resource and saving yourself some money!

If you are looking for something on creativity then I recommend

The Art of Creative Thinking: How to be Innovative and Develop Great Ideas (John Adair Leadership Library)
