A book to get you past the fear :)

I don't remember exactly what commentary/book I was viewing/reading but Robert Rodriguez (SpyKids, SinCity, etc) recommended this book as a tool to get past the fear of 'finishing' or getting started for that matter.

Art & Fear
On the Perils (and Rewards) of
David Bayles & Ted Orland
ISBN: 0-9614547-3-3

Thought I would share the info. It is read often in this household.

What other books do you use as inspiration?
