Free Creative Tips eBook

In May, I ran a Twitter campaign, a tip a day for getting out of a creative block.  This was built on tips from my Take Five guests, clients and things which have helped me at those times when inspiration has disappeared or when there have been too many ideas fighting for attention.   The point with the tips is to interrupt the thinking and get you out of a rut for a few minutes (or longer), so that you have time to get away from the perceived problem and then come back to it with fresh eyes.  Some of the suggestions seem to contradict each other, but that is half the fun - you can try them all and find out which ones work best for you.

The tips have proved very popular, with people emailing me with which ones they tried out, how they worked and some alternative suggestions.  I also heard from those who were just relieved to be reminded that everyone gets stuck from time to time.  Some people said they had missed a few of the tips and asked me for a list of all of them in one place. 
I initially put ‘just’ a list together and sent it to a couple of people.  Then I thought, “Nah - it’s for creative people, let’s make it a bit more interesting.”  I also wanted a little creative project for myself, to amuse myself in my downtime.  I took the tips and some of the hundreds of photos I have taken over the past couple of years and have created an ebook which I am giving away on this website, as a little gift from me to you.  The photos don’t necessarily illustrate the tip, but give you something to look at.  If the tip doesn’t inspire you, feel free to write, draw, dance, sing or otherwise create a response to any of the photos to kickstart your creative juices.  

And if that doesn’t make you want to download it - some of the photos are of cats, which is what the internet is for!

Have fun trying them out and break that block!
