COACHING THE ARTIST WITHIN just published
- Hello, everybody:
I wanted to let you know that my new book, COACHING THE
ARTIST WITHIN, has just been published and is now available.
It is the first book on creativity coaching and explains how artists
can become effective self-coaches.
Below is the Booklist review of COACHING THE ARTIST WITHIN.
If the book interests you, you can get it from Amazon right now.
"Maisel, well known in self-help and creativity aids circles, brings
to this resource for writers, actors, visual artists, and
musicians--as well as your average Joe or Jane--a lifetime of
experience. The author of Fearless Creating (1995) and
Affirmations for Artists (1996), this advisor to rockers and
screenwriters organizes his latest title into 12 skill areas,
including generating energy (even in the midst of day-to-day
demands), centering, managing anxiety, perfecting creativity
planning, and maintaining a creative life. These `skill lessons'
help would-be artists stifle negative thoughts and develop and
use scheduling skills for starting and completing creative
projects. Each lesson features as examples artists of diverse
disciplines, such as a dancer, singer, poet, and painter, and
provides exercises designed by the author to help readers
incorporate his methods into everyday reality. To succeed in the
arts, commitment must lead to effective, concrete action. Maisel
shows the way to both."
