Publisher's summary

A guide should give clear directions and then get out of your way. In this unique collaboration that bridges two generations, best-selling author Dan Millman and his co-author (and daughter) Sierra Prasada help orient you as you make your own way through five universal stages of creativity: Dream, Draft, Develop, Refine, and Share. Whether you’re seeking new goals, the discipline to reach them, a shield against self-doubt and inertia, or practical advice on sorting through feedback and connecting with readers - you’ll find a way forward in this fresh approach to writing and storytelling, performed by the coauthors.

Sage advice from writers, artists, and innovators complement engaging stories by Dan and Sierra about their own progress through the five stages and the writing life. Discover for yourself: The Creative Compass will transform both the stories you tell and the stories you live.

Critic reviews

"A good book about writing will guide you like a torch. You finish it and you’ve learned some useful lessons; you feel enlightened. But a great writing book is hard to finish because it keeps exploding in your face. All it makes you want to do is write. Everything else: blown away. The Creative Compass is like that, a box of inspiring dynamite. And of course that’s just what you want. Boom! Get back to your writing!" (Steven Goldsberry, creative writing professor and author of The Writer's Book of Wisdom)
"This is a wonderfully insightful guide to the art of transforming ideas and stories into books. It presents old narrative and stylistic truths in a new, highly imaginative way." (Stephen Kinzer, author of The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret World War)
"Thoughtful, thorough, and practical in its application, this is an important work on the creative process, and on the craft, business, and magic of writing." (from the foreword by Terry Brooks, best-selling fantasy novelist)
