Creativity In the New Year

This post may be somewhat repetitious for me considering that last month I blogged about indulging in wasting time. This month I'd like to highlight a book with a very similar theme.

This book is at the top of my "To Be Read" pile in 2019. I can't wait to dive in and find out how much brilliance I can achieve with boredom. Though I haven't read through this book yet, just perusing the table of contents and seeing chapter titles such as "Digital Overload," "Doing the Deep Work," and "You are Brilliant," literally makes me giddy inside. 

I found this book and others about creativity while wandering the shelves of nonfiction at my public library, and I have to admit that once I started reading books about creativity, I realized how much, even as an author, I have drifted away from cultivating my creative heart and soul. I'm thankful for the authors who have taken time to step back and really contemplate the nuts and bolts of creativity and then taken the time to pull it altogether and share it with readers. 

So, if you're feeling like me, and wanting more creativity in the new year, I hope you'll check out this book and find a few on your own that encourage you to give yourself permission to do what's necessary to get the creative juices flowing in your life, even if that means allowing yourself a little boredom.  

Happy Boredom in the New Year,


  1. It really is true. We can push ourselves to the point that we run out of creative "juice." This looks like a great read.
