Recommended Reading: Creativity

“To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.” — Joseph Chilton Pierce

A while back, I promised a reading list of books on creativity…  Here they are.  I’ve added a few other books that have inspired me throughout the years.  Maybe they’ll inspire you too.

Of course, inspiration is personal; that’s what makes it so amazing. And if you don’t actually go out there and make art, inspiration will knock on your door a lot less frequently.  The key to staying inspired is to make more art, whether that’s dancing, painting, singing, or playing music.  I need to remind myself of this quite often, too.

Thanks for this list. I agree that the way to keep inspired is to keep making art, even when you don’t feel like it. I recently read The War of Art and found it a life-changing book. There’s alot to think about in this book, and I didn’t get it all on the first reading.
