You fear mistakes in your art. The failed prototype, the flubbed line, the unoriginal song, the dreamless drama- and yet they are vital to your creativity- they lead to the adjacent possible and form the stepping stones, to new realizations, undiscoverable in any other way.
This book is a playfully illustrated self help reflection journal crafted to activate the inner sources of your creativity as well as to help you believe in yourself as an artist.
Lessons and creative prompts unfold as poets and writers speak universal truths across the centuries, exhorting you to reflect upon your life and what's what's meaningful to you on your creative journey.
By documenting observations, aha's and revelations you bring visibility to the invisible: the dreams that call you, the ones that won't let go, the ones you simply must say yes to.
The Artist's Journey Creativity Reflection Journal written by artist, best selling author, speaker and Stanford trained existential psychiatrist Nancy Hillis, M.D. is meant to inspire self-discovery, to act as a mirror of your creative process and to encourage you to trust and believe in yourself. This is a "why to" not a "how to" journal to exhort you to finally say YES to your dreams.
