ascertain whether the daily rituals of these women affected their creativity Here are some things I gleaned from the book Each woman was unique and had her own pattern for her life Many women were early birds, particularly writers, although some writers chose the evening Many women were night owls, especially singers A few fit neither classification Some women worked in pajamas most of the day, while others felt the need to dress up complete with high heels for their work Some were blessed with seemingly endless energy and good health while others suffered from depression, tuberculosis, schizophrenia, and illnesses Some women followed rigid schedules, others just worked when they felt like it, and still squeezed in an hour or even half an hour whenever they could just to be able to keep up with family life and other demands Some lived healthy lifestyles with good eating habits and exercise Walking outside seemed to be a favorite exercise Others did not care about what they ate, totally avoided exercise, and used alcohol or drugs to self medicate and make them able to work Most of the women, no matter what field in which they worked, made a point of taking time to read every day Of those who had pets, dogs and cats were popular Some had birds, one woman had many different kinds of animals, and one woman had a pet alligator.Since the chapters were very short, this was a nice book to take along with me and read in waiting rooms or other places I highlighted quite a few names in the table of contents so that I could go back to those particular chapters or learn about the woman from other sources flag Like see review Jan 28, 2019 Amanda Jackson rated it it was amazing I really, genuinely enjoyed this book I think it would be interesting either way that you re

first thing I ve read that not only goes into what it s like for women artists but that includes all the hard parts of it, physically, mentally, socially and emotionally I studied Art History in college and we mostly talked about men and the process of creation was rarely discussed beyond their schooling and techniques Once I picked this book up, it was hard to put down I found it inspiring and comforting knowing that my experience being an artist may be unique but it s also familiar I also loved learning about women I may not have previously discovered and learning about female artists I ve long admired I spent the last couple weeks pulling the book out whenever I had a spare moment or before I planned on writing and just read about a few artists at a time It was a great read and I
