Its a long book that takes weeks to finish and had to return it early in Libby. Coming back to this when it's available again.

It’s good, but really feels to be lacking some of the core details from The Artist’s Way book. I’d recommend reading them together. Reading just the workbook was a bit confusing.

This is a book that you could read every year and will still find something new or applicable to your creative life right now.

I would have rated this book higher had I read it years ago. Some of this stuff didn’t quite apply to me, some of it I had worked through in therapy.

But some of it was good for me to work through and I can see myself going through this book again in a few years to see how I’ve progressed.

Weird religious references that are off-putting, but kinda cool and inspiring otherwise.

I knew this was really just a glorified journal for the Morning Pages that Cameron insists you do in her Artist's Way program. It actually is more. While it's definitely not a replacement for the AW book itself, it includes inspirational quotes that are related to the subject, a brief synopsis of that week's theme from AW, and...(my chagrin--I didn't notice this until my 12 weeks were done)...a place for notes about artist dates (also in the AW program). Oops!
I found this spiral-bound edition very clunky, however. The cover is a very sturdy hardboard, while the pages may eventually fall out because they don't move very freely. I don't sit and write straight-on at my desk--I angle my writing surface and--in the early morning--may want to curl up with my journal in my lap--which was impossible with this. It's also very wide--if you do this every morning for the rest of your life, you'll run out of bookshelves quickly! I'm glad I started with this one, but any future Morning Pages will be in a regular composition book or spiral notebook.
