The Artist's Way is an excellent book for any artist who is feeling stuck.

The perfect way to gain success from this book is by working with a life coach or a psychologist.

They will motivate you to do the exercises and a psychologist especially will help you tackle the issues from a neuropathic way.

This book is SO good for artists. Tons of quotes from legends, and tons of motivation at such a DEEP level.

While some of the philosophy and religious ideas in this book can be off-putting, the underlying concepts and exercises can be quite helpful in discovery your creativity. And while written primarily for full-time professional artists, part-time amateur artist will also find it useful.

This book worked for me because I was willing to just suspend my disbelief and do what was asked of me by the program.

This is one of the many books recommended by NaNoWriMo & Camp NaNoWriMo.

It is incredible what gets uncovered in the exercises and morning pages. I suggest to ignore the labels ... "artist", "God", "creator"....they only mean whatever you infer into them.

Currently working through this with a group. We've struggled with the "God" and "Great Creator" language in the book. I think if you can replace these terms with whatever works for you (the Universe, the self, whatever) then you can get through it. I think, overall, the message is good and it has helped me with some things I've been working on. Not very far into the book (only on about week 3) but I see a lot of potential with it. The Morning Pages are incredibly helpful. I do recommend this for anyone feeling blocked or looking to be more creative.

I have been using this book for several years to spur me on. I do Morning Pages and Artists Dates now automatically. I set the book aside for a few months,then pick it back up and do the exercises again. It works well to keep me growing!

Recommended, looked at start, very good for unlocking creativity. On the long "for later" list.

Maybe it's just me, but I actually couldn't get past the introduction. The whole "creativity doesn't come from you, it comes from God" turned me off pretty quick. Maybe I should have stuck with it, but I'm not the kind of person who buys into that kind of thing.

A real artist's way.
