A lovely link to Austin Kleon’s fabulous blog post about the creative process. A must read for anyone who’s on the verge of taking a plunge off the creative diving board or anyone who feels like they’re blocked.


  1. Steal like an artist.
  2. Don’t wait until you know who you are to make things.
  3. Write the book you want to read.
  4. Use your hands.
  5. Side projects and hobbies are important.
  6. The Secret: Do good work, then put it where people can see it.
  7. Geography is no longer our master.
  8. Be nice. (the world is a small town.)
  9. Be boring. (it’s the only way to get work done.)
  10. Creativity is subtraction.
