Creativity from the Inside Out
by Cathy Wild
Standing Place Press
There’s something about the word creativity that either makes your juices start flowing or makes you turn around and run the other way. Some of us embrace the idea of being creative beings while others think they don’t have a creative cell in their entire body. Whichever is true for you, Wild Ideas could be your ticket to opening the gates to your creativity.
Using her own life and that of her clients as the basis for the book, Cathy Wild leads us on a journey through the seven stages of the creative process: feeling inspired, getting started, hitting the wall, going deep, working passionately, finishing, and stepping out. Within each of these are layers where she leads you through processes and questions that will depend on your experience of things like desire, risk, chaos, tension, mystery, compromise and success.
Wild Ideas is a valuable book that is meant to be read, lived, and worked with. It isn’t a book to sit down and read in a weekend. If you’re interested in deepening your access to your creative self in a fun and challenging way, Wild Ideas is for you.
