I started this in early October, determined to stick to the weekly habits and exercises. The reality was mixed levels of success in terms of my tenacity and appreciation for Cameron's methods.

Her two cornerstones are daily morning pages and a weekly artist's date. I did the morning pages in the morning for exactly one week, but couldn't sustain getting up at 5:30am to do them (she doesn't suggest a time, but this was my only window before getting ready for work). I was just too tired and it didn't seem the right time for me to get the best out of the exercise. So for a few weeks I stuck to it religiously in the evenings, but to be quite honest I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to be getting out of it. Whatever 'it' was, I wasn't feeling it. It also coincided with a very sad period for me, and I kept finding myself writing about that, which after a time wasn't what I wanted to be immersing myself in just before bedtime.

Probably up to around week 7 or 8 of the course I did many (but not all) of the exercises set for the week, and did find it particularly interesting to let my mind wander remembering things I used to enjoy doing but have stopped doing for no good reason, and things of interest which I've never tried. At times, though, particularly in the second half of the book, there seemed to be a bit of repetition around the theme of these, and some of them felt a bit 'cutesy' and not something I felt I'd benefit from doing. It was at this point that I felt the book was diverging from what I'd hoped to get out of it. Possibly more my issue than the book's, I hoped this book would help point me towards my real passion in life, but increasingly I got the sense that Cameron assumes you already know what your artistic talent is and that the point of the book is to help with creative blocks. My creative block is I can't get off the starting blocks and don't know if I even have any creative talent, not that a teacher when I was 7 critiqued me and negatively changed the path of my life forever.

But, I will give Cameron credit where it's due. Whilst I was religiously doing the exercises in the first few weeks of the course, I DID find myself becoming more interested in creative pursuits. I'd assumed that writing was the creative pursuit I wanted to develop when starting the book, but surprisingly (to me) I became less interested in writing and more interested in other artistic pursuits. I did some watercolour painting for the first time in decades, and a strange new interest in line drawing has emerged. I never knew it was something I was either interested in appreciating in others' work or that it was something I'd be interested in doing. So there must be something to Cameron's methods, as I don't think I'd have explored any of that without reading the book. I've also very quickly got out of the habit of doing these things in the last few weeks since stopping the evening pages and doing the exercises, so perhaps the key benefit of this book is that it's simply a habit that reminds you to take creative time out for yourself.

I'm not entirely sure why it has such a cult following. It's interesting at first, but I felt it goes over old ground after a time. Perhaps if you are already a fledgling film director / screenwriter / novelist / artist it gives you a kick up the backside, but I don't think it's necessarily the best book for someone who's actively trying to find their creativity.

3.5 stars - interesting, but a bit disappointing given the hype. ( )

It's just... not very good. Weirdly culty and clearly based on the model and language of AA (up to and including the surrending to God--who of course is totally not THE God, but whatever god you want him to be, but also happens to quote the Bible and Jesus enough to really make you question whether she means any of that "not, y'know, GOD God.") Includes multiple citations for most of the hot self-help books of the 80s and 90s as well as multiple AA publications.

Maybe it's good for bank tellers who feel lost in their hobby or accountants who were pressured into numbers work by their parents, but it's of absolutely no use to anyone trying to (or indeed who may already be) making a career or life practice of art.

The true tl;dr is the same as any other book on building a practice: do the work, and keep a journal. If you're a beginner and you have a specific discipline you want to work in, you'd be much better off just getting a 101-level book in that. ( )

This is short, sweet, and to the point and full of good points. It's really more of a workbook though so I'll need to read it again and work through it more next time. ( )

Ok, this is hard to review. I started this book - and its related exercises, especially the morning pages - more than one year ago. I only lasted for five weeks, then I stopped. My idea is that this is mainly blocked people, people who can't express their creative side. I came to the - right or wrong - conclusion that this wasn't - and isn't - my main problem with my artistic practice. Anyway, after one year, I came back to the book, finished reading all its chapters and even wrote one morning paper. Who knows, can this be a new start or a second failed attempt? All in all, I recognize this is a very good book, which has a well deserved fame for helping many people but, also, it is not the right help tool for everybody. ( )

Julia Cameron penned this spiritual guide to creativity way back in 1992 and it’s still the “go-to” cure for writer’s block. Even if you don’t have problems getting words on paper, this book will help you find that part of your brain you know you have but seem to have misplaced. While I’m not partaking of her recommended “artist’s dates,” I am a huge fan of her “morning pages” and have used this practice for several years. ( )

WORDS FOR IT

I wish I could take language
And fold it like cool, moist rags.
I would lay words on your forehead.
I would wrap words on your wrists.
"There, there," my words would say--
Or something better.
I would ask them to murmur,
"Hush" and "Shh, shh, it's all right.
I would ask them to hold you all night.
I wish I could take language
And daub and soothe and cool
Where fever blisters and burns,
Where fever turns yourself against you.
I wish I could take language
And heal the words that were the wounds
You have no names for.

This sourcebook is dedicated to Mark Bryan.  Mark urged me to write it, helped shape it, and co-taught it.  Without him it would not exist.

[Introduction] When people ask me what I do, I usually answer, "I'm a writer-director and I teach these creativity workshops."
For most of us, the idea that the creator encourages creativity is a radical thought.
[Epilogue] In ending this book, I yearned for a final flourish, some last fillip of the imagination that would sign the book.
