The War of Art

While reading DEDICATION (which now that I’m at the mid-point, I totally get why a friend-executive wants to make it a film but is looking for the right “take” which I fully intend to deliver to her because I understand and love this story), I’m rationing the last of the incredible WINNING THE INNER CREATIVE BATTLE by Steven Pressfield.

This book has blown my mind and kicked my ass. It’s brilliant, inspiring and funny, and its chapters are short and to the point. It’s like it’s a bible to my artistic side – I apply its philosophies and lessons to directing, writing, filmmaking. Yet, there is not one word about story structure or blocking.

The best part? I bought it for $4 at the weekly used book sale at the Edendale Library. I couldn’t resist that cover.
