Five Things from The Artist's Way

Every once in awhile I wonder where a book I own might be hiding in our many bookcases. I wonder if I even still have it! When I mentioned Morning Pages in my notebook post, I got to wondering where my copy of  The Artist's Way was. So I did my usual "scan the bookcases" thing, where I... um... scan the bookcases.

Voila! I pulled it out and flipped it open. And boom, there was a cool exercise, and it's kind of a perfect prompt for a post. So here it is, with credit to Julia Cameron.
