Publisher's Summary

Second edition!

Welcome to your seven-day journey to creativity.

Have you ever become "blocked" while writing, painting, or taking photographs?

Do you want to get your creative juices flowing?

Do you need motivation to be creative?

Do you think to yourself, "I know I have it in me, I just need to get it out"?

Do you want to make money by selling your craft?

Did you answer yes to any of these questions? Then this is definitely the audiobook for you!

This audiobook is broken into seven sections that will guide you through the process of prioritizing creativity in your life. You can choose to take seven days to walk through each section and exercise, or you can work through each section at your own pace, following each section and exercise as you're ready to do so. So much of creativity depends on your own pace and your knowledge of yourself as an artist.

You are an artist. It doesn't matter if you're a painter, a musician, a writer, a knitter, a crocheter, a scrap booker, a sewer, an architect, or if your dream is to complete a different kind of creative project. Just because your creative medium of choice may give you another label doesn't mean that you're not an artist. You dream, you love, and you create.

This might come as a shock to you, but the world needs your art. Humans are interconnected through the experience of life, and we all appreciate art in different ways. We wear art, we hang art on our walls, we read art, we buy art, we listen to art, and we use art to keep us warm in the winter. The bottom line is that everyone craves art, but not everyone can create art. The world needs your art and you can use it to create a connection to someone, to make their life a little more enjoyable.

Robotic Narration

What disappointed you about Creativity: Creative Block Solutions to Rebuild Creative Confidence and Productivity?

The narration is so flat and robotic, it unfortunately makes this book sadly boring and difficult to pay attention to, less than 5 minutes in.

Has Creativity: Creative Block Solutions to Rebuild Creative Confidence and Productivity turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes if this is how they are typically narrated. But this is the first time i've encountered this problem within this particular genre, and it's important to me, so i will continue to try books within the genre. I feel it is important to mention, as well, that the genre covers the type of topics that require compassion, gentle reassurance, or at the very least a matter-of-fact narration, that helps illuminate the content with no frills. The Narrator of Art and Fear, by David Bayles and Ted Orland, comes to mind here, for appropriate narration of this type of genre.

What didn’t you like about Andrea Erickson’s performance?

She sounds computer generated and flat. Apple's Siri, is more emotive.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It's unfortunate because it may be a good book really, but i almost instantly couldn't stand listening to it. I may have to try it in print and amend my review if necessary. Apologies to the narrator, this is not at all a judgement of her character.

Any additional comments?

I'm, sadly, disappointed, i was quite excited by the topic and synopsis of this book.

Can’t get passed computer narration

This was my first disappointing book from audible. The stilted computer narration made it impossible to engage in the actual material of the book. Most people who listen to books are interested in the quality of the narration, quite possibly are auditory learners. I’ll be careful to sample the audio before my next purchase.

Poorly read book.

A somewhat interesting book, but poorly read with a near monotone voice and at a too fast pace. The author calls all creative people “men or he.” I would never buy this book or listen to it again.

Imagine ...

A pep talk for how to squash other human beings rather than inspire w creativity. If I were a creature who knew nothing of creativity, I think I would rather study tax law after hearing this authors take on humanity's greatest capability. The reader on the other hand was brilliant. She can stay.
