I first worked through The Artist’s Way (TAW) several years ago, when I was starting to make art again after a 10-year break. For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, TAW is an immensely popular book which lays out 12 weeks of exercises designed to unblock a blocked creative person. Some parts are a little touchy-feely for my tastes, but overall I can definitely recommend the book. It helped me into a period of high artistic productivity.
I regularly listen to the podcast I Should Be Writing. When the host Mur decided to start up a TAW group, I decided now would be as good of a time as any to re-do the book. I did it mostly on my own the first time around, and I thought it would be interesting to see what it’s like to have the experience along with others.
The group just started last week, so it’s not too late to join if you’re interested. So far it seems like an interesting group of people.
