How to turn off your critic and turn on your creativity
About the Book
You are creative. Do you love to make stuff? Are you making stuff? Do you love to write? Are you writing? Would you like to be making more? Writing more? Do you need an injection of courage to help you move forward in your creative journey?
This little book is full of stories and exercises and is based on a regular Monday morning workshop I've been running for the past three years. For a while I had been noticing friends who said they weren’t creative and it was patiently obvious, to me and others, that they were creative but they just didn’t know it. I thought I might be able to convince them if I just gathered them around my kitchen table and introduced them to a non-judgemental way of creating. It would be almost like kickstarting a rundown battery. I was really excited as I imagined whole worlds of creative ventures opening up for people who thought they weren’t good enough.
Now, through this book I want to convince you.
