The short story: I feel like I've hit a creative wall. I'm a writer and actor (and sometimes dancer) and I've been doing mostly comedy stuff lately, but really I just like creating or participating in something exciting. But since my sketch comedy group broke up recently I'm feeling lost.
A couple friends have recommended I read Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way
, which guides you through a rigorous twelve-week program of finding your creative self and gaining confidence through writing and other exercises. All this sounds great, but also, well... intense. Plus, when I read more about it on Amazon
, there seemed to be some kind of God and Christianity thing going on. No offense meant to religious folks, it's just that I'm not religious at all and I don't like mixing spirituality into my creative inspiration. I just want to have a direction again.
Have any of you PPKers read it? Is it worth it? Is it too God-y? Or maybe you can recommend me something else to get my artistic mojo back?? Lay it on me.
