Day 50 - Why? The War of Art
While this book is small and a quick read, it packs a powerful punch in supporting the artist's developmental growth. It brings attention to the patterns of resistance that is within all life, and how these too prevent the artist or a potential artist from even picking up a brush. Living a life without an awareness to our ego without finding a way to understand the limiting strategies it undergoes, would contribute to an internal war within oneself. Impressed with Pressfield's ability to share his vulnerability about his own creative growth, and how his discovery in a shift of thinking from being an amateur to profession expanded his world view. All of his concepts he shared are not only helpful for a developing artist, or even a more matured one. They are also helpful for life.
I encourage you to buy a copy of The War of Art for a better understanding of your own creative process. Whether you're a master artist or beginning artist, this is an excellent book.
