A portable reminder,

This review is from: Steal Like An Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told Me About the Creative Life (Paperback)
Although this is a small short book,it's great at being a portable reminder of how to live a creative life.Creative as in any form of self-expression that's important to you.Part practical,part inspirational what Austin Kleon does is describe what drives us.The title comes from his acknowledgement that nothing is new and nothing can be new;what we do is synthesise and add a different slant to other people's work.The other point I took from himis "find yourself as you do the work" instead of waiting until you know what you're doing.
