Yesterday I started reading “The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity”. It’s a really interesting book with a 12 week process to find, or rather recover, your creativity. One tool is the morning pages, to write 3 pages in longhand each and every morning. I started with that today, it worked like a charm and was really fun.
From her website Julia Cameron Live:
The Artist’s Way movement began more than two decades ago as author Julia Cameron shared her ideas with a few friends in her living room. Today, The Artist’s Way has helped millions of people around the world discover–and recover– their creativity.
The Book Depository: Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity
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.
Update May 18, 2014
Writing morning pages is a terrific habit. Content varies from whining to notes around events in life to things falling in place. Whatever I write it’s a great way to either get things and thoughts out of the system or to achieve clarity. Writing in the morning means I start the day with a clearer mind and soul. Today and yesterday was all about clarity, as I wrote thoughts and concepts I have mulled over the last 2-3 weeks fell in place and made sense.
