He is one of the most insightful voices on one of my favorite topics: building and maintaining a creativity habit. Today on the show please welcome my long-time friend and creative inspirator – Austin Kleon.
If you’re not familiar with this work, Austin is a lifelong artist and the bestselling author of three earlier books (Newspaper Blackout, Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work)…but today we’re all about his new book titled Keep Going: 10 Ways to Stay Creative in Good Times and Bad.
And BONUS – this episode is an extra special treat because Austin came out to Seattle and we chatted in front of a live audience! Some great questions, a few good laughs, and it all takes place in a huge church! Want to avoid burn-out and stay creative in good times and bad? This’ll be a great listen.
We also cover…
- Maintaining creative momentum
- Austin’s personal daily practice
- Kids and creativity
- Getting unstuck
- The value of time as a great editor for your work
- And…the value of ‘going away so you can come back.’
