3 Best Books On Creativity much on my mind lately surrounding COVID, but I'm saving it for next week. I've got conflicting ideas going on in my head, and I want to flesh them out a little more before I share. 

SO, I'm sharing a few of my absolute favorite books regarding creativity. They're super easy reads, and I promise you will get major insight from each of them. I don't re-read books...these are the exceptions. 

The links are to the books via the author's websites, and they are not affiliate links. So you can explore and learn even more.

First, Creativity is a Verb, Patti Digh

Simply put, this book is a collection of short stories that feature creativity prompts. It is also one of the most underrated books I've read, and I've read a lot of books. It's crazily affordable, and even if you don't consider yourself 'creative,' you will love this book and inevitably want to gift it to all the people!

Next, Steal Like An Artist, Austin Kleon

I think I read this in two days. It's a very short book, but that's only because it is concise in its message. It's on all the must-read lists for creatives for excellent reasons. Pick it up, read it, think it over, and then reread it.  

Finally, Big Magic, Elizabeth Gilbert

Guys, I absolutely hated the book that made this writer famous, Eat, Pray, Love. Sure, the movie was good, but the book was cringe-worthy, so I resisted reading Big Magic. What a mistake. This is such an amazing look at the creative process. Just read it.
