NotJustLaura’s Comments:  After 70-odd pages, it is time for Julia Cameron and I to part company.  I’ve never been particularly comfortable with 12-step spirituality and that is the approach Ms Cameron takes in The Artist’s Way.  From the four chapters I have read, I’ve picked up the ideas of Morning Pages and Artist’s Dates and I’ve chosen an affirmation to work with.  The rest has left me scratching my head and feeling very uncomfortable as I try to persuade myself to work with the ideas.  I am very sure that trying to force this square peg into that round hole will not be helpful to me and could even be damaging so it’s time to move on.  I’m feeling rather disappointed as I’d wanted to work through the book for such a long time but it is clearly not for me.
