The Creative Habit

The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It For Life
by Twyla Tharp

I love opportunities to look in to the minds of creative people. I like understanding how they work, how they see the world, and how they get their work done. The Creative Habit is just that: a glimpse into the creative world of choreographer Twyla Tharp. She demonstrates how being creative is not some magical gift, but a skill and habit that is cultivated, practiced, and repeated. There is plenty to take away from this book for everybody, because being creative, the act of taking two seemingly unrelated things and making them work together, is a part of what so many of us do, whether we're artists, managers, scholars, teachers, or something else entirely. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in being more creative.
