    با این جلد عجیب:) کتابیه درباره موانع بروز خلاقیت یک هنرمند و بیشتر گروه هایی از افراد منفی رو نام می بره که به نوعی جلوی افراد خلاق رو می گیرند. گویا خود کتاب طنزی درش هست که در ترجمه نیست و خوندنش خسته کنندست. با نام "پروازهای خلاقیت" ترجمه شده. کامل نخوندمش ولی گفتم برای معرفیش مختصری بنویسم با این جلد عجیب:) کتابیه درباره موانع بروز خلاقیت یک هنرمند و بیشتر گروه هایی از افراد منفی رو نام می بره که به نوعی جلوی افراد خلاق رو می گیرند. گویا خود کتاب طنزی درش هست که در ترجمه نیست و خوندنش خسته کنندست. با نام "پروازهای خلاقیت" ترجمه شده. کامل نخوندمش ولی گفتم برای معرفیش مختصری بنویسم

    I'm not here to give bad reviews and hate on books. I like to say that there's no sense wasting your time reading a book you don't enjoy when you will never have enough time in the world to read all the books you will enjoy. Having said that, I really wanted to like this book. It's essentially a book of guided meditations for the creative soul... which I would gladly read.

I like to say that there's no sense wasting your time reading a book you don't enjoy when you will never have enough time in the world to read all the books you will enjoy. Having said that, I really wanted to like this book. It's essentially a book of guided meditations for the creative soul... which I would gladly read. But most of the chapters are telling you how to avoid various toxic people who will suddenly invade your life and do their best to divert you from you creative endeavours. And for this creative soul, in this pandemic time, the only thing I've experienced in negative terms is complete and utter indifference. Lol. Send me some toxic people goddammit! Anyone! We are so so lonely! Just kidding, I have such a wonderful family I don't feel very lonely at all. This book just isn't for me. It might be for you! I read some of her other stuff, way back. I think I got them for wedding presents from thoughtful friends. But I think I am wired too differently from her, ultimately her stuff hasn't really resonated with me. I have often done the habit of "morning pages" which I learned from her, though. I do kind of want to write a book of similar meditations myself, but all the quotes and inspirational kicks are from like metal lyrics and comic books.

    This was interesting to read--a more no-nonsense tone to Cameron's writing than I'm used to from The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity--but also a helpful reminder of her versatility as a writer. This is especially relevant given her illuminating points in the chapter "The Celebrity Zone" about character types being forced upon the famous, who are then punished when they deviate from the roles forced upon them by the public. I realized I had put Cameron into the "creativity gur This was interesting to read--a more no-nonsense tone to Cameron's writing than I'm used to from The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity--but also a helpful reminder of her versatility as a writer. This is especially relevant given her illuminating points in the chapter "The Celebrity Zone" about character types being forced upon the famous, who are then punished when they deviate from the roles forced upon them by the public. I realized I had put Cameron into the "creativity guru/midwife" box, yet she, like everyone, has varied interests and talents--and indeed, even wrote regularly for edgy magazines! Supplies is a book with many chapters, each a short mini-essay explaining a different danger or pitfall--in the form of a named character--that often rises as an obstacle to creative endeavors. While a lot of the characters Cameron names aren't distinctly memorable (for me, anyway), each character/pitfall is clearly described, recognizable, and a real danger for anyone trying to do something creative and new. End-of-chapter exercises follow each mini-essay, and they are excellent! They ask direct questions to allow readers to face the chapter's outlined problem with unflinching honesty, but also with kindness. The exercises are designed to help readers identify each chapter's creative danger/character in their own lives, forgive themselves for past bad decisions they've made in dealing with said danger/character, and move on in a better position to handle such pitfalls should they arise again. On the whole, Supplies is a straight-talking guide designed to help people avoid common problems that arise during any project, "creative" or not. Cameron has also managed to make a fun, helpful, whimsical book with a narrator whose blunt, matter-of-fact attitude only enhances the whimsy. Supplies reads much like a practical guide through fairy land (or a creative journey) for adults. Recommended to: Anyone wanting project or creativity help from a blunt but caring artist who's been through the common pitfalls, and will explain them and how to get around them; but who does not want to use the gentler methods or weekly structure of The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity.

    I really liked this. I love how straight forward it was. It was not a mystical magical journey like the Artist's Way. I am still unable to finish the artists way because it makes me day dream too much. It was concise, no bullshit look at the challenges an artist might encounter. Also it touches on the people you encounter and what to not take seriously. I imagine that aspect being very confusing, but it get it now. Best line: "Drop a call of encouragement to someone behind you on the trail." It I really liked this. I love how straight forward it was. It was not a mystical magical journey like the Artist's Way.

Best line: "Drop a call of encouragement to someone behind you on the trail." It is important to honor the people who love you before, during and after. Not the superficial people who have an expiration date. But then again, some good souls are just creative one-night-stands. Honor those people too. They contributed to your life and it was very special. I recommend this book!

    The author of The Artist's Way shows how the people around you can sap your energy, sabotage your projects, make you think you are crazy, and occasionally help you. There are also some helpful questions to consider after each chapter. You'll recognize yourself and those who block your creative path.

    Just read this again. It's one of those books that's nice to revisit especially during a time of struggle or change. You can just delve in and pick a chapter. Short, and like the advice your good best friend might give you. Just read this again. It's one of those books that's nice to revisit especially during a time of struggle or change.

    This is a positive experience for anyone trying to tap their creativity. Julia Cameron has changed her focus from her earlier work, but I feel it is a natural progression.
