Goodreads Book Review – The Artist’s Way

Claim the Right to Creativity in Your Life

I completed this 12-week program during the COVID pandemic. Through seismic changes, both personal and in the world at large, I ended this journey in a very different place to the one where I began. I learned a lot from the morning pages and the artist’s dates. Some of the exercises were fun, even if they were a little silly.

The trick for me has been to balance my scepticism with my creativity, something that Cameron discusses often in the book. Like many creatives, I am inclined to feel guilty about spending time and energy on my frivolous creative pursuits and that I should concentrate on the real responsibilities of life. Cameron acknowledges this struggle and urges us to find a way to balance both. This is easier said than done. Sometimes you make it, sometimes you don’t. That’s ok, as long as you forgive yourself, get back on the horse and keep going.

If you would like to see how I fared on my creative journey through The Artist’s Way, take a look at my blog by following the link on my bio.

I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to take control of their creative life, whether starting out, or trying to find a better to manage their creative interests together with other responsibilities. I wish you all the best on your creative journey.
