10 things nobody told you about being creative
Steal like an artist by Austin Kleon. So I followed his advice, and stole the title of this blog post from the subtitle of the book.
I loved the way Austin openly states that nothing is original, so he encourages us to embrace influence and then remix + reimagine things in our own way. He intersperses his 10 key pieces of advice with great quotes, stories of his own journey, and plenty of stolen (but acknowledged) ideas from others.
So if you are feeling like you are stuck in a creative rut - no matter what industry or situation you are in - just get hold of a copy of this book. Read it + then put the ideas into practice.
