Reading for writers: the War of Art


Subtitled “Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles,” this examination of the internal obstacles to success is a must read for anyone who wants to live their life to the fullest. It is generally recommended to and for those who are in the creative arts: writers, actors, artists, etc., but is equally for the artist, visionary, and entrepreneur.

Author Steven Pressfield says, “Creative work is…a gift to the world and every being in it. Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you’ve got.”

I read this book many years ago and am currently revisiting it. This is the year of vision and Pressfield provides a real kick in the rear with his observations and “been there” empathy.
