Warning – this is a *shameless promotional stunt – but I think you’ll really like it. Leave a comment on this blog post and you’ll be entered into a draw for a complimentary copy of Todd Henry’s new book The Accidental Creative.
But it’s not that easy. Your comment must include a tip, or a suggestion, about how to keep yourself awake and alert while staying up late to work on a project. You know… tips like, “I smack my forehead with a ruler every 9-minutes” or “I do push-ups but lick the carpet every third one”… or maybe something less violent or disgusting. Whatever you do to burn the midnight oil we want to hear about it
This book is ideal for a wide range of people. Seriously. That being said, creative professionals and artists alike will benefit that much more. Being creative on-demand is no simple task, Todd Henry makes creative work easier and that’s a huge relief. It’s a very well-written book. His insights and action steps are like a guiding force, or should I say a “secret weapon”, for those of us who have to be inspired and productive. It’s an extremely thorough book and in my mind is like a business how-to book, meets textbook, meets self-help book, and it has bible-like qualities when it comes to how we work and live within the creative process. This book is a must-have. – Corwin Hiebert, Reviewed on Amazon.ca
