We have a winner! Congratulations to Tom Lietaert, whose comment was randomly chosen (by numbering all comments [except my own] and using a random number generator). Tom has won the copy of The War of Art. I will be contacting him by email to arrange delivery. Thanks to all who participated!

Recently I reviewed Steven Pressfield‘s The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles . Here’s an excerpt from my review:

This is not your typical self-help book. Steven Pressfield kicks ass and takes no prisoners. The title is not just clever, it’s very appropriate. Taking a cue from Sun Tzu’s classic The Art of War, Pressfield uses the metaphor of battle throughout. The person who aspires to being creative–to bringing into existence in this world anything which wouldn’t be there without his efforts–is in a continuous war against powerful forces that would defeat that purpose. (Read my War of Art review.)

I have been recommending this book to anyone and everyone who has an ambition to do something great, to create something others will remember and be affected by. Now I want you to have a chance to read it for yourself.

Thanks to the generosity of the author and his publicist (Oettinger Associates ), I have a copy of The War of Art to give away to one of my readers. To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment below, sharing what is the biggest block to you in the creative process (Contest is now over, but you’re still welcome to leave a comment below!). What sort of resistance do you run into (internally or externally) that keeps you from doing what you really want to do with your life? On Monday, August 23, I will choose one commenter at random to receive the free book. I will contact the winner via the email address connected to the comment.

If you can’t wait, or want to be sure to get a copy, order The War of Art from Amazon
