Read full description of the books The Vein Of Gold:I treated this book like the bible to open up my creativity once again. Years ago, nearly a decade ago, in London, I read The Artist's Way and religiously wrote my "morning pages" and followed the exercises.
Now, having once again at another milestone in my life, I am forever grateful to discover this book among a collection of books for sale by an 86-year old retired artist who lives nearby. It was in pristine condition, and I begged to borrow it before she sold it. Every day, I sat down and wrote my "morning pages" and then read the book, against an invisible and imaginary deadline.
Just a few months ago I suddenly consciously realised that I had lost my love for cooking. I stopped composing when I finished my 4-year study. Much to my chagrin, I had gone to conservatory precisely because I couldn't stop composing. I didn't look at the house I lived in as a home where the heart is but more like an obligation and I was the slave who owned it. I felt obliged to share the house instead of enjoying it alone.
Today I am happy to report that I finished this wonderful book while waiting for two loaves of banana bread to finish baking. There was a time, in Houston, when I baked a loaf of bread every week. I am thus amazed --- that by freeing myself, deliberately trying NOT to be busy, so as to have time to read "The Vein of Gold " --- a title I first heard from my writing teacher, the prize winning novelist Ann de Graaf, as well as starting to write again.
The Vein of Gold really is about freeing yourself and finding the creativity that lies within. As aptly subtitled: the vein of gold is a journey to your creative heart.
Even a writer who has never known herself to be musical can finally compose a song -- "Avalon" music and lyrics by Julia Cameron. Perhaps a musician can finally write a novel.
