Book Club


Emily from Wide Open Spaces has decided to start a sort of book club. I absolutely adore her blog and was super excited when she asked if I would be interested in reading the Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. I honestly never heard of it before, but the lady at the book store went on and on about it when I asked for help. So I thought I would extend the invite to all of you. I bought mine at a local book store and I think Emily said she got her's off of Amazon.com for only $4. Considering we all use our creative selves by blogging and in our daily lives I thought it would be a great way to hopefully stretch ourselves a bit. It all begins Monday, sorry for the short notice. I do hope you decide to join along. Just let me know if you do!

Paula: I was in a book group with this book--about
13-14 years ago.... it inspired a huge surge of creativity and growth in my career. Great idea....
it actually fueled the publication of my first book!

I love this book - I read it years ago when I was in grad school. It's funny - it seemed to disappear for a while, but I've seen a lot of people reading it lately.
