With the same jolt of inspiration that Big Magic offered to creatives, along with the methodical, actionable steps of Julia Cameron's international bestseller, The Artist's Way, and relatable stories like those in genre-blending You Are a Badass, this guidebook is a revelation.

A Map For Wild Hearts is encouraging and inspiring. You can feel Andrea rooting you on throughout every chapter.

This book is a must read for any creative type. As someone who creates art through a lot of different mediums, this is exactly the kind of work that will help me organize my projects instead of flitting from one to another, especially when I’m feeling stuck.

There is a moment in the book where Andrea says “Breathe, wild heart. You’ve got this.” And you know what? She’s right.

This will probably sound bad, but I chose this book at my favorite book review site because I was perplexed by its description. I couldn't really tell what the book was about from the blurb or the title and subtitle, so I was curious about what the book actually contained. In this book, the author leads you through making a physical map that expresses aspects of you and your creative bent. In the first part of the book, she goes over the obstacles to creativity. Once those shackles are off, she ...more

This wonderful book is one that’s worth reading several times. It’s full of helpful advice, friendly stories to show that getting stuck happens the to best of us, and lots of great ideas for getting over creative roadblocks, combining a bit of mindfulness, self reflection, and interesting exercises in this endeavor. The author has created a system that can actually be applied to many facets of life, and she did so in a caring, supportive, cheering-you-on-from-the-sidelines way. I think this ...more

I generally don’t fancy myself a ‘creative type’ in the traditional sense of the word, so I wasn’t entirely sure what I would gain from this book. I picked it up anyway, and boy am I glad I did! Hannah talks about mapping out a sustainable path for finishing a project. I wasn’t working in a specific project, per se- not an author, musician, painter, etc.- but her advice and guidance can be applied to so many aspects of our lives. It helped me to think critically about why I was feeling so lost, ...more

Andrea Hannah’s voice is so articulate in both its strength, realism and beauty. This book simply sparkles. She lights you up with inspiration from her own journey to practical guidelines on how to keep pushing when you want to give up (and as creators, haven’t we all been there?). She makes me remember WHY I make art; not for anyone else’s sake but for my own. Because the world needs more joy. This book more than contributes to that. My heart is full. Thank you, Andrea!
