Abstract:

Creativity [according to the author], is the product of preparation and effort, and it's within reach of everyone who wants to achieve it. All it takes is the willingness to make creativity a habit, an integral part of your life: in order to be creative, you have to know how to prepare to be creative. In [this book, the author] takes the lessons she has learned in her ... thirty-five-year career and shares them with you, whatever creative impulses you follow - whether you are a painter, composer, writer, director, choreographer, or for that matter, a businessperson working on a deal, a chef developing a new dish, a mother wanting her child to see the world anew ... To [the author] sustained creativity begins with rituals, self-knowledge, harnessing your memories, and organizing your materials (so no insight is ever lost). Along the way she leads you by the hand through the painful first steps of scratching for ideas, finding the spine of your work, and getting out of the ruts into productive grooves.-Dust jacket.
