Letters to A Young Artist is essential reading for anyone who wants to discover their inherent creative potential, lose self-doubt and continue in spite of anxieties - as well as those millions of people already following the path mapped out in Julia Cameron's bestselling The Artists Way.
Letters to A Young Artist includes the author's tips on how to become an artist in the first place, have faith in your art and encourage the creative flow. Full of exercises - she suggests, for example, writing 14 pages on anything every morning - there is advice on an artist's approach to many aspects of life, incuding work and play, rest and exercise, adventure and security, relationships and sex and personal appearance.
She provides inspiring ideas on what to write about as well as invaluable encouragement in dealing with creative blocks and temporary failure.
