I had this book checked out for three months but couldn’t finish reading it. The concepts of morning pages and the artist’s date are brilliant (the first couple chapters). After that, the book becomes boring, rambling, and repetitive. It’s…Read moreRead more of this comment

This book changed my life! Mostly because I realized that I didn't have a strong connection to what I wanted as an artist. One of the exercises I still use today are the morning pages...do them...you're life will be richer for them! I…Read moreRead more of this comment
