With humorous, clever language and fanciful line drawings, Cameron describes the dreadnaughts you might encounter on your creative journey, from Worrywarts (who try to put a damper on your enthusiasm) to Bad Fairies (who try to bring you down a peg to their level) to Tokyo Roses (who try to make you doubt yourself). She also details the many situations that can bump you off your flight path, such as the Wall (which you're bound to smash into about two-thirds of the way through a project and which tells you your work is so bad you should just abandon it).
As in her previous works, Cameron provides plenty of exercises to get your creative juices flowing and fight off dreadnaughts. And she again advocates "morning writings"--jotting down three pages of longhand musings each day--to clear your head, keep your creative trajectory in mind, and identify potential obstacles and allies.
If you loved The Artist's Way, you'll find this book to be a delightful companion volume, filled with a vast array of creative and spiritual insights. --Nancy Monson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
