I’m reading an excellent and enlightening book about the creative process called The Path of Least Resistance – Principles For Creating What You Want to Create by Robert Fritz. I don’t think it’s still in print, but you can still find it used and really cheap at Amazon.
This is not a book about how to control your creativity, that sort of approach never works. It’s about how to set creativity into motion so it can work for you, and how to gently set it back on course when it gets distracted or sputters to a complete stop.
I haven’t even finished it yet but I’m already applying the principals to my own life successfully!
