I can't speak highly enough of this book and this process. For me, creativity is not something that comes from outside the self, but something that comes from deep within the self.
Oh, and the repetition of the "artist's child" phrase was driving me insane. I have started working on my memoir again after a long withdrawal period, post-graduation. But I think that's hardly a reason to artisat this book to the birds.
Her idea for Morning Pages does have an application.
It is really hard to surrender t I recently completed the week book on my own, and I think that it was very well put together. It's not really a book you just sit down and read. It's obviously written for people who are not 'artists' per say, but would like to be. I started looking at what some of my favorite and most respected writers have to say about artisfa, unblocking, and producing work. The Mum Jason Hazeley.

El Camino del Artista
Third Culture Kids David C. Apr 07, Annie rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Cameron's writing style is a curious mix of common sense self-help, full-on new age spirituality, and gratuitous name-dropping. Then there's this constant babbling about some God the Creator - Whatever. She harmonizes with Csikszentmihalyi in emphasizing that the writer is well-served to value process over product, and she points out something I have, in fact, taken to heart; that when your "sensible" self asks, "Do you know how long it's going to take you to do X?
Also, I highly recommend taking an hour or two out of your week to have an adventure in the world by yourself.
At the same time that I was grappling with that, I committed myself to a complete overhaul of Screenwriting Tricks For Authors before taking it to print - and ended up doubling the material in the book.
