About the book
Creativity is the new buzzword. From business leaders to artists and entrepreneurs, everyone is looking for ways to tap into their creativity and find solutions to pressing problems. Sounds easy enough, but the road to creativity is a difficult one. Distractions and noise can block inspiration, leading to frustration and wasted time.
Creative Struggle is Real is an interactive journey with creative guidance and making tools to bring you closer to your unique creative capacities so you will never shy away from your creative genius again.
While the creative struggle may be inevitable, it doesn’t have to feel impossible. The book is organised into three parts: Defining Your Creative Context, Designing Your Creative Practice, and Maintaining Your Creative Momentum.
- A practical guide to help you define creativity, put you in action, and design a creative practice that supports your creativity for the long term.
- For creative professionals and “non-creatives” working with creative teams who want to make a positive impact and gain the connections and recognition they seek from team members and co-creators.
- Learn to reach your full creative potential.
