Have you ever head of The Artist's Way, by Julia Cameron?
It's a "course in discovering and recovering your creative self." Definitely sounds like a book for me.
I found out about The Artist's Way, on a Feng Shui sight The Tao of Dana. I LOVE this site, it's full of Feng Shui tips! Anyways, I was on this site and bought Dana's Feng Shui 101 eBook. I was digging into it, you know, to find tips on how Feng Shui can help with creativity... which led me to an old webinar Dana did waaaaay back in 2013 (watch it HERE, it's free, just have to register for it, which is super easy). In the webinar Dana mentions this book An Artist's Way, and briefly explained how it really transformed her creativity. Just with this very brief introduction to this book I was sold and ordered it that night and it arrived on my door step this afternoon!
As I read The Basic Principles, I was taken aback.. whoa.. it kinda has me worried.
In the basic principles it states that this process can cause defiance, anger, and grief.. whaaa? wait a minute... by the way Dana talked about it, I thought this was going to be a super fun experience... (damn my impulsiveness and to Amazon for making my impulsive purchase so easy!! #first_world_problems).
Although it looks like it's going to challenge me in ways that will be uncomfortable, I'm going to go though the book's 12 week process. After all, I've bought the book and the two workbooks to boot.. so, I'm gonna give it a go.
Wish me luck!
