Bookworm Weaknesses


Here is a collection of a few of my all time favorite books and a few new ones I’ll never let go of.

The War of Art by far is a must read!  For every person, every situation and every dream, there is one thing that sets itself against us all; Resistance.  It’s an easy read and one that will shift your thinking from blaming your problems on everything externally and call resistance what it is.  Here’s a couple exerts:

Resistance cannot be seen, touched, heard, or smelled.  But it can be felt.  We experience it as an energy field radiating from a work-in-potential.  It’s a repelling force.  It’s negative.  Its aim is to shove us away, distract us, prevent us from doing our work.

For a writer, there’s a secret he knows that wannabe writers don’t, and the secret is: It’s not the writing part that’s hard.  What’s hard is sitting down to write.  What keeps us from sitting down is Resistance.
