Creative demons and how to slay them

Holman, Richard2022
Bedevilled by the demons of self-doubt, fear of failure or lack of inspiration? Lay waste to your mind-forged monsters with the help of Creative Demons and How to Slay Them. If you've ever embarked on a creative endeavour, then there's a good chance you'll have been bedevilled by self-doubt, fear of failure or a lack of inspiration at some point along the way. This book will help you to banish those mind-forged monsters one by one, no matter how grotesque or scary they may be. Drawing on inspirational anecdotes from art, philosophy, neuroscience, nature, music and contemporary culture, creativity expert Richard Holman provides you with your very own mental armoury to see you through every stage of the creative process. By learning through the experiences of such creative luminaries as Leonardo da Vinci, Marina Abramovic, J.K. Rowling, Dr Seuss and Herbie Hancock, you'll find out how best to overcome the perils of procrastination, the sting of criticism, the seductive tug of convention or the gnawing feeling that you're not up to it. It's time to say farewell to your demons and make your next creative project the very best it can be.
