I was attending a workshop for songwriters this past weekend and the subject of creative blocks came up. Everyone in the arts that I have ever known, famous or not so much, have experienced or worry about creative block. Writer's call it "writers block" but we all know what it means... The muse has forsaken us for another.
One of the instructors in the workshop mentioned the work of Julia Cameron, a writer of thirty books and former spouse of Martin Scorsese. One of her books is called "The Artist's Way Morning Pages Journal" which I haven't read yet and will report on later after I do. From what I understand it's all about creative rediscovery and includes tools and exercises to help you get those creative ideas and juices flowing again.
