creativity: some things to read

I know I’m slightly late (should have posted this yesterday) It’s that lovely time of year again, Imbolc….full of expectation and hope, (although I’m still wishing I could hibernate until April…) I hope that you are blessed with inspiration and enthusiasm as we head toward the Spring solstice. 

If you’re in the same hibernating mood as me this is an excellent time to catch up on some reading. Today’s weekly email from Brain Pickings resulted in me doing a search on the site for articles on creativity and this post is a way of both bookmarking the  search for myself and sharing it.

Here’s an interesting article about some of the situations that kill creativity. 

It’s written by the Bêhance Network, which looks at ways to help creatives to be successful via an online portfolio, making creative connections and advertising creative jobs and opportunities.

Articles specifically about dealing with or avoiding creative blocks are here.

(This article about a new way of reading is also interesting.)
