In Jessica Jones' last installment of reflecting on her journey with Julia Cameron's The Artist Way course, she gives her three biggest pieces of advice for those considering taking the 12-week course. "Part of me expected that some strange magic would come of The Artist’s Way – a creative breakthrough, a major epiphany, a finished work – but I realized that the course is only meant to lay a foundation," she says.

The Dance of Discovering Yourself

In her 12th reflection of Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way course, writer and actress Jessica Jones shares her experience with synchronicity during her time with the book. "I’ve found that each week’s lesson serendipitously intersects with whatever is going on in my life at that particular moment," she says.

Sarah Catface / Illustrator, Artist

Sarah MG pulls her inspiration from everyday life, her beautiful friends and the women who inspire her. The Denver, Colorado-based artist's characters are intriguing and sensual. Aloof, in their own worlds. The third eye is a common theme among these voluptuous creatures, possibly because they see beyond the physical world. They’re living life to the beat of their own drum: sleeping in, dancing solo, lost in existential contemplation, wondering how to get back to the cosmos.

"If enthusiasm is a loving surrender to the creative process, then discipline is the rigidity that prevents that flow from occurring," creative Jessica Jones says in her review of Week 9 of 'The Artist's Way' by Julia Cameron. "Remember, art – the process of creating – is supposed to be fun." Treat work as play. Color outside of the lines. Love yourself. "The rest will follow," Jones says.
