Why This Book Matters:
The Artist’s Way teaches readers how to stop holding themselves back from their full artistic capabilities.
The Big Takeaways:
- Keep a journal so you can write about the little things, forcing your creativity to awaken.
- If You don’t have to write with any control or purpose; just write.
- You must face those nasty feelings that live deep inside of you.
- You must have a conversation with the little voice inside your head telling you, “you can’t.” Your life and your creativity belong to you, and your desire to create is valid.
- Getting in-tune with your creativity can take some time, but don’t give up on yourself.
- When you leave your artistic side, it becomes neglected. Any neglected relationship takes time to rekindle.
- You are not an originator of ideas.
- Like many artists before you, you are a watcher, a listener, someone who sees an idea and helps mold it into its being.
- The desire to push yourself past the successes of others and into perfection will only negatively affect your creativity.
- Expecting too much from yourself can turn your art into worry, forcing you to give up things you love.
