Format: Paperback
Although I am a writer by trade, I am not a fan of 'how to write' guides, and so when I was given Cameron's book I had small hopes. However, after the first few chapters, the book quickly warms up and becomes a real eye-opener and an invaluable tool, for artists of every kind.

Firstly, it helps that this book is not a 'how to' at all, though it may appear like one. In fact, it is a practical study of the artistic psyche -- Cameron explores issues such as what causes writer's block, how to cure it, and how to keep it at bay. The exercises at the end of each chapter are more confidence-builders than writing exercises -- and though some (such as one which recommends that you do some mending!) are a little offbeat, others can be real eye-openers and helpful starting points for creating new work.

Furthermore, Cameron writes from an "I've been there" perspective, and starts every chapter with a little glimpse of her own life, which draws the reader in. She also quotes other artists of her acquaintance and is able to give good examples and make practical suggestions for a more productive and creative life.

This book really has changed the way I approach my writing work. A fantastic read -- inspiring and enormously helpful.

I love the way Julia Cameron writes about everyday things, making them come alive and allowing us to see 'things' from different aspects. She has definitely inspired me to get my creative head on again. I will be buying more of her books. Recommended!!

This book has well as proving the budding writing with excellent tools for starting out also gives the reader/user a friendly insight into the author as her extracts resemble a diary. At the end of each extract is an exercise to help get the creative juices flowing, but while most of them are written based a few involved pictures and making things, which all adds to the fun and thinking differently to become a better wordsmith. This book has encouraged me to write more regulary and to just get on with it!

Excellent. Having read and used "The Artists Way" I found this volume refreshing as it synthesises the principles there whilst coming from a slightly different direction. An encouraging and stimulating read.

This book is really good. I was suggested to read it for my course but I think it would be good even for somebody who just needed to focus there attention away from negatives. The exercises are really focusing.

It's the best book I've read for a long time

As usual Julia Cameron is a super motivator. This book concentrates on writing but the tips can apply to any creativity. Get it and be glad.
