The Creative Habit

I just recently have been inspired by a book that one of my professors suggested as a reading in our thesis photography class and wanted to share it. Twyla Tharp's 'The Creative Habit' is a book I think everyone should take the time to read. Mrs. Tharp is a dancer and choreographer who, through her book, exemplifies making creativity a habit. "Creativity is not just for artists." In order to be creative, you have to know how to prepare to be creative and put forth time and effort. Discipline and good work ethic is what will set any person apart from the rest of the crowd. If art is the bridge between what you see in your mind and what the world sees, then skill is how you build that bridge and that is the reason for exercises and practicing; to help you develop skill. I hope you consider reading more about it and enjoy it as much as I have. :)
