Is everyone creative?

Yes. I believe that everyone is creative. Whether you declare yourself an artist or not, you make creative choices every day. You are handcrafting a unique life whether you feel you are “artistic” or not.

I have been teaching for 30 years. I have never met anyone who was totally not creative. I think if you are interested in this work, you have already decided that your creativity does matter. If you are looking for validation, the validation comes from using the 3 tools of Morning Pages, Artist Dates and walks. Morning Pages put us in touch with our dreams. Artist Dates inspire us and give us energy. Walks literally “walk” us through our doubts and criticisms. Walking is a form of prayer. Walking, we are guided. Walking, we are not alone. Walking, we keep moving forward toward ourselves and our own individual artistry.

  1. Touted as the long-awaited sequel to The Artist’s Way, Cameron’s latest is so similar in look and format to the original that they could be sold in a boxed set. Previous follow-ups, including The Vein of Gold and The Right to Write and a slew of little spin-offs, here give way to a 12-week course of encouragement and exercises promoted as an intermediate level of The Artist’s Way (inviting us to anticipate an advanced volume). At first and for a long way into the book, we encounter the wheel-greasing exercises that worked magic for millions, helping people discover their innate creativity by devising gentle ways around the myriad obstacles that block us (e.g., listing things we would secretly love to do.) Cameron re-introduces the basic tools the daily morning exercise of hand-writing three free-flowing pages and the weekly solitary “artist’s date,” designed to help us romance our inner artists and she adds the ancient practice of walking as a means of getting in touch with our deeper feelings and truer thoughts (hence the title). “When I can, I walk with friends, noting how companionable our silences become, how effortlessly deep our conversations,” Cameron writes. Cameron does indeed capture the feeling of strolling and talking with an old and trusted guide. Her core insights are the same as in earlier volumes, yet her words seem to have grown wiser. She writes about the distractions of success, and about the long solitary stretches “climbing the glass mountain” it takes to bring a large-scale creative project to completion. Her latest book reveals how reaching higher also means going deeper. 10-city author tour.Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
