With clear-cut justification and a sharp argument, Twyla Tharp explains how her experience in the dance and theater industry has provided her with the tools needed implement creativity into her everyday life. Tharp uses the example of Mozart to illustrate her main point: Creativity is a habit. She further explains that creativity is a product of preparation and effort and is not just a god-given gift that only some of us have. She uses Mozart to illustrate that being creative, implementing creativity as an everyday habit, is not easy. Making creativity a habit takes a lot of time and practice and it requires you to push yourself out of your comfort zone just as much as you stay in it. Tharp includes several useful exercises that anyone can do almost anywhere. Using an assortment of visual techniques, Twyla Tharp’s The Creativity Habit describes the core essentials that all people will benefit from in order to start living within the habit of creativity!
