Books for Creatives and Creators

Create by Marc Silber, $19.99

ISBN-13: 978-1633539822

Many of us think of creativity as something distant and incompatible with daily life―a skill that only artists get to use. Maybe you feel like a land-locked surfer, yearning for exhilarating rides.

Or maybe you live for the few hours a week when you can take photographs, paint, or write. It’s time for a new mindset. Create shows you how to rediscover the artist within you.

Overcoming the barriers to innovation is easier than you think. People who make a living in the creative arts know that there is a cycle to unlocking the imagination: visualize, know your tools, work your craft, refine, share.

When you tap into this cycle, you’ll find ways to operate at your highest state in all aspects of life. Marc Silber, best-selling author, award-wining creative and educator, shows you how to avoid the traps of procrastination, overthinking, and self-doubt.

The exercises in Create are specifically designed to help you find certainty and confidence in self-expression. View this book on Amazon!
