And it’s done, out, published, ready – the first of my Sanctum-inspired books, “The Power Of Creative Paths!” Thanks to everyone for your support!
The book, the first of several, is my guide to improving your creative abilities. The idea is that you can identify how you create, and then expand your horizons to use other creative methods and work well with people who create differently. Through advice, exercises, and examples, it’s a way to get better and dreaming things up and reaching those valuable Big Ideas.
So go on, give it a shot!
This is it folks, the countdown to my first book on creativity, The Power Of Creative Paths!
The book is going to drop on Saturday the 30th. I’m lining up some reviewers right now (and there’s a chance to get in on it) to help give people an idea of what’s in it from a reader’s viewpoint. Only six more days!
So what’s in this book?
Basically, after years of working with Seventh Sanctum, I’d realized that creativity fit certain paths – ways we get to our “Big Ideas.” Most people had one or two default paths, and not everyone knew how to get along with people different than them. So I put all my findings into one book, a handy guide to help you get off of Creative Paths you’re a bit too stuck on and onto others, as well as how to work with people different than yourself creativity-wise.
A lot of this comes from my curious observation that the generators at Seventh Sanctum fit specific patterns, or certain little tweaks, trends, or sets of data seemed to inspire people surprisingly. In time I began to see that these general observations fit specific trends, and formed a useful theory around it.
I’m pretty pumped as this will be the first book based around my work here – to be followed this summer by the Way With Worlds books . . . and maybe a few more things over time. I figure after some 16 years of doing this, it’s time to put my ideas and findings and advice into a new format!
So hang in there, it’s almost arrived . . .
