Twyla Tharp is a well-known choreographer. She has written a book called The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It for Life. She describes it as a practical guide. I have read it, and indeed it is. I cannot recommend it enough.
Today I ran across a link to a YouTube interview with her. It’s only a few minutes long but I found it a good listen. And it is so wonderful actually to hear her speak. Go here to listen to it.
This link is at a blog called “43 Folders”, which is a blog about creativity written by Merlin Mann. While I was there I went to another of his posts. It is called “Driving Around the Buffalo.” Here he talks about his own dark night of the soul and the irony of a blogger who tries to help to help others in their creative journey now finding himself in that awful dark place of not being able to be creative.
