In Standing at Water’s Edge: Moving Past Fear, Blocks, and Pitfalls to Discover The Power of Creative Immersion, Dr. Anne Paris draws on extensive experience working with artists to explore the deep psychological fears that thwart creativity. Arguing that creative blocks and procrastination are actually the artist’s attempts at self-preservation when facing the psychological issues that creativity brings up, Dr. Paris suggests that success comes from understanding the deep hopes and fears that profoundly influence creative capacity. Rather than presenting art as a lonely, solitary endeavor, she shows how relationships with others are actually crucial. Through her unique model of “mirrors, heroes, and twins,” she describes the kinds of relationships that support artistry, the important role of childhood experience, and how to psychologically navigate every aspect of a project. Throughout the book, Paris focuses on the hardest part: entering a creative state. Standing at Water’s Edge helps creative people take that crucial step into immersion and start — and finish — their greatest projects.
