09 Jan / The Artist’s Way…
Sometimes writers get into ruts (not me, of course – just, you know, those OTHER writers). The perfect anecdote for becoming unstuck, is to pick up Julia Cameron’s book, The Artists Way. This workbook, inspires, encourages, and motivates.
Currently, I’m taking my time reading and working through The Vein of Gold, another Cameron gem. One of my favorite aspects of these books is that every page features a quote from another writer. It’s cathartic to know that other writers struggle with the written word.
Cameron, herself, has an incredible story – battling alcoholism, being married to Martin Scorsese, awesome success, and personal woes. I’m also reading (okay, you’re on to me, I have roughly 6 books going right now) Cameron’s biography, Floor Sample. It’s delicious – especially for writers – be sure to check it out.
This blog post became all things Julia Cameron. Not a bad way to go, really.
Enjoy the evening!
