    These little snippets are like crack to my soul.

    This book had me compulsively reading the daily rituals of all these women writers, artists, performers, dancers I don t know what it is, but I find how people work absolutely fascinating I also appreciated Mason Currey s thoughtful author s and acknowledgement notes He addressed that this book is corrective, considering that his first book covered manymen usually because their work had fewer social barriers Great collection I want

    I read and enjoyed the first book in this series, and appreciated that the author addresses the criticisms of that one in the introduction It s not all about dead white men after all.The basic message Prioritize your work Make time for it Get it done Like the first one, this is a collection of snippets from memoirs, biographies, interviews, letters, etc dealing with how 143 women artists get their art done I found it interesting how many of these women I d never even heard of before, so t I read and enjoyed the first book in this series, and appreciated that the author addresses the criticisms of that one in the introduction It s not all about dead white men after all.The basic message Prioritize your work Make time for it Get it done Like the first one, this is a collection of snippets from memoirs, biographies, interviews, letters, etc dealing with how 143 women artists get their art done I found it interesting how many of these women I d never even heard of before, so that was a plus Like the earlier book, this one is uneven in the amount of information about each woman, and some sections felt like filler material Still, I had fun dipping into this one over the course of a month or so

    being any kind of creative is an immense challenge, but being one when you are a woman is evencomplicated this book is yet another reminder and proof of that nevertheless, it filled me with enthusiasm, as in if they could, so can i.

    What it covers in breadth of many different women artists it loses in anything other than a cursory overview of how each artist approaches work I find the subject fascinating but yet I found myself bored of reading much the same thing artists tend to be workaholics that often have to separate themselves from friends and families and spend a lot of time alone and thinking and working Being a mother I wasinterested in how are you able to do that when you have a family.

    I m a sucker for routines, so duh, I loved this so much that I made myself parcel it out over two weeks, reading a section or so to start or end each day I also SO appreciated the way Mason Currey opens, acknowledging his blind spot in the first Daily Rituals focusing almost exclusively, though unintentionally, on great MALE artists throughout history Kudos to him for rectifying the oversight so beautifully.

  7. says:

    It s ok, but not as entertaining or helpful as I thought it was going to be It s probably not meant to be read from front to cover as I did, butpicked through here and there I found it inconsistent, and some women were clearly in it just because it was supposed to be a book about women artists and it had to have a certain length, because there was next to nothing in there about their working habits This is probably a great secret santa gift, though, so there s that.

    I enjoyed reading this book so much As a writer and someone who is forever struggling with her writing process, I love reading about other women writers and artists writers, painters, architects, scientists, sculptors, performers, dancers, singers, composers and their rituals, their habits, and how they manage to integrate their work into their daily lives or, alternately, separate it A major thread running through many of these women s lives is the challenge of reconciling between their gen I enjoyed reading this book so much As a writer and someone who is forever struggling with her writing process, I love reading about other women writers and artists writers, painters, architects, scientists, sculptors, performers, dancers, singers, composers and their rituals, their habits, and how they manage to integrate their work into their daily lives or, alternately, separate it A major thread running through many of these women s lives is the challenge of reconciling between their gender roles wives, mothers and their work Many were able to overcome this, some with the support of their husbands, others despite their husband s lack of support This isof a reference book, with about a page or two about each artist The reason I loved this book is because it includes these short profiles of some 150 artists in a condensed way, introducing the reader briefly to each artist, opening up to further reading So if you re intrigued by a specific artist, you can read her memoir or look up works by her I have already marked some artists, mainly writers, whose memoirs I want to read

    I really enjoyed this book, though it took me nearly 8 months to finish It is not the kind of book to read in one sitting, but rather chip away at slowly when you need it I loved getting to read profiles of how women have managed to get their work done while juggling whatever other duties they have The sheer volume of women in this book astounded me I had no idea many of these amazing creative women existed I started reading this book to see if I could gather any insight that might help me I really enjoyed this book, though it took me nearly 8 months to finish It is not the kind of book to read in one sitting, but rather chip away at slowly when you need it I loved getting to read profiles of how women have managed to get their work done while juggling whatever other duties they have The sheer volume of women in this book astounded me I had no idea many of these amazing creative women existed I started reading this book to see if I could gather any insight that might help me hone my own creative process But I quickly realized, everyone has their own way of doing things It s a bit refreshing to find that there is no answer And that a lot of these women have overcome the same struggles I feel when trying to produce something worthwhile Thanks to the author for pulling together all these stories
