One of the world’s leading creative artists, choreographers, and creator of the smash-hit Broadway show, Movin’ Out, shares her secrets for developing and honing your creative talents—at once prescriptive and inspirational, a book to stand alongside The Artist’s Way and Bird by Bird.

All it takes to make creativity a part of your life is the willingness to make it a habit. It is the product of preparation and effort, and is within reach of everyone. Whether you are a painter, musician, businessperson, or simply an individual yearning to put your creativity to use, The Creative Habit provides you with thirty-two practical exercises based on the lessons Twyla Tharp has learned in her remarkable thirty-five-year career.

In "Where's Your Pencil?" Tharp reminds you to observe the world -- and get it down on paper. In "Coins and Chaos," she gives you an easy way to restore order and peace. In "Do a Verb," she turns your mind and body into coworkers. In "Build a Bridge to the Next Day," she shows you how to clean the clutter from your mind overnight.

A creative bible

Read this book 7yrs ago and I still intensely rely on the principles shared by Ms. Twyla. If you lack discipline, revving up your creativity on demand or or consistency in what it is you pursue... this book is for you.

This book is simply great.

This book is a straight up shot of truth about building creative muscles. I've read and reread this it, and it has made a huge difference in my productivity. Pulling a rabbit out of the hat is hard, hard work. Twyla Tharp has made a study of it here and offers practical, possible steps for pulling it off.
