Used this as a text book in a women's art class. Terrific reference and inspiration. ( )

An astounding, eye-opening resource for writers, painters, and other creative types. This is like a field guide for artists on how to coax out their freshest, most unique concepts and to rein back the inner critic that hampers creativity in the early stages. I highly recommend this work. ( )

This comes highly recommended by many, but I couldn't get into it at all. I like early morning writing and journaling, but no way can I manage three pages of longhand. I like walking, but not on my own, not for miles each day. The 'spiritual' side of this seems rather New Agey, and the writing rambles in a way that doesn't fit with my style or personality at all.

After taking nearly three months to read just a handful of chapters, I tried dipping into it at random and couldn't find anything that was relevant or which I wanted to explore. So - unusually for me - I decided to give up on this book. ( )
