Booktopia Comments

This is a self-help classic, which is about "unblocking" creativity and making your creative pursuits a priority in your life. Although it's New Agey as all get-out, and I rolled my eyes sometimes, I did the whole thing. When I started, I hadn't written a word in three years. I haven't stopped writing since I got finished. Claudia Gray, author of the New York Times bestselling YA series, Evernight - in an interview with Booktopia: Ten Terrifying Questions

Product Description

"The Artist's Way" is the seminal book on the subject of creativity. An international bestseller, millions of readers have found it to be an invaluable guide to living the artist's life. Still as vital today-or perhaps even more so-than it was when it was first published one decade ago, it is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work.

In a new introduction to the book, Julia Cameron reflects upon the impact of "The Artist's Way" and describes the work she has done during the last decade and the new insights into the creative process that she has gained. Updated and expanded, this anniversary edition reframes "The Artist's Way" for a new century.

Award-winning writer Julia Cameron is the author of seventeen books, fiction and nonfiction, including The Artist's Way, The Vein of Gold, and The Right to Write, her bestselling works on the creative process. A novelist, playwright, songwriter and poet, she has extensive credits in theater, film, and television.

WRITE A REVIEW

This book is a must for the creative head.

5

I was recommended this book along with Paris letters and found the connection within the first few pages. Julia Cameron gives lessons in the direction of writing in a very constructive manner and with a tone that you know you have to do the work otherwise you will never move towards your goal of a writer/artist. She gives accounts of situations to explain her comments and each chapter is another task towards your goal. At this stage I am only a third of the way through the book, it is not an easy read but rather it makes you work that brain of yours to retrain it in another direction. It is incredibly interesting and I love the way the work is assigned along the way.

"This book has been around for a long time, and I hope it sticks around forever. It guides the reader through a fascinating (and fun) 12-week-long program of exercises and explorations that help loosen up one's artistic self. It takes you on a journey that will cost you nothing (aside from the guidebook) and it brings much insight, gently helping you see what is holding you back, and showing you how to move forward. Three times in the last decade I've committed to doing The Artist's Way's program, and each time I've learned something important and surprising about myself and my work. Just to show how influential it's been to me--the first time I did the program, I had decided by end of it that I wanted to 1) travel to Italy and learn Italian, 2) Go to an Ashram in India, and 3) Return to Indonesia to study with the old medicine man I'd once met there. We all know what THAT decision led to. . . Without The Artist's Way, there would have been no Eat, Pray, Love."--Elizabeth Gilbert "THE ARTIST'S WAY by Julia Cameron is not exclusively about writing--it is about discovering and developing the artist within whether a painter, poet, screenwriter or musician--but it is a lot about writing. If you have always wanted to pursue a creative dream, have always wanted to play and create with words or paints, this book will gently get you started and help you learn all kinds of paying-attention techniques; and that, after all, is what being an artist is all about. It's about learning to pay attention." --Anne Lamott, Mademoiselle "The premise of the book is that creativity and spirituality are the same thing, they come from the same place. And we were created to use this life to express our individuality, and that over the course of a lifetime that gets beaten out of us. [THE ARTIST'S WAY] helped me put aside my fear and not worry about whether the record would be commercial." --Grammy award-winning singer Kathy Mattea "Julia Cameron brings creativity and spirituality together with the same kind of step-by-step wisdom that Edgar Cayce encouraged. The result is spiritual creativity as a consistent and nourishing part of daily life." --Venture Inward "I never knew I was a visual artist until I read Julia Cameron's THE ARTIST'S WAY." --Jannene Behl in Artist's Magazine "Julia Cameron's landmark book THE ARTIST'S WAY helped me figure out who I really was as an adult, not so much as an artist but as a person. And award-winning journalist and poet, Cameron's genius is that she doesn't tell readers what they should do to achieve or who they should be--instead she creates a map for readers to start exploring these questions themselves." --Michael F. Melcher, Law Practice magazine "This is not a self-help book in the normative sense. It is simply a powerful book that can challenge one to move into an entirely different state of personal expression and growth." --Nick Maddox, Deland Beacon "THE ARTIST'S WAY (with its companion volume THE ARTIST'S WAY MORNING PAGES JOURNAL) becomes a friend over time, not just a journal. Like a journal, it provokes spontaneous insights and solutions; beyond journaling, it establishes a process that is interactive and dynamic." --Theresa L. Crenshaw, M.D., San Diego Union-Tribune "If you really want to supercharge your writing, I recommend that you get a copy of Julia Cameron's book THE ARTIST'S WAY. I'm not a big fan of self-help books, but this book has changed my life for the better and restored my previously lagging creativity." --Jeffrey Bairstow, Laser Focus World "Working with the principle that creative expression is the natural direction of life, Cameron developed a three month program to recover creativity. THE ARTIST'S WAY shows how to tap into the higher power that connects human creativity and the creative energies of the universe." --Mike Gossie, Scottsdale Tribune "THE ARTIST'S WAY is the seminal book on the subject of creativity and an invaluable guide to living the artistic life. Still as vital today--or perhaps even more so--than it was when it was first published in 1992, it is a provocative and inspiring work. Updated and expanded, it reframes THE ARTIST'S WAY for a new century." --Branches of Light "THE ARTIST'S WAY has sold over 3 million copies since its publication in 1992. Cameron still teaches it because there is sustained demand for its thoughtful, spiritual approach to unblocking and nurturing creativity. It is, dare we say, timeless." --Nancy Colasurdo, FOXBusiness Praise for VEIN OF GOLD, the second volume in the ARTIST'S WAY trilogy "For those seeking the wellspring of creativity, this book, like its predecessor, is a solid gold diving rod." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY This book has been around for a long time, and I hope it sticks around forever.
