One of the biggest thing that happened in 2018 was getting a publisher for my book. Having spent years working with words in magazines and podcasting, creating something measured in tens of thousands of words is quite a different experience. (So far, the process is an awful lot messier, more frustrating and fun than I’d ever imagined).
One wonderful result is the excuse to spend lots of time swimming wildly among the words of other writers and thinkers about creativity, our brains, and how we live generally. I’ve even become comfortable with scribbling in the margins of books (if this fills you with horror, sorry! I understand… ).
Since this is the last email I’ll send you this year, I wanted to share some of the most insightful, stimulating and books I’ve read this year. In short, the best creativity books for 2018. Being asked for a last minute gift idea, or need an escape from the bustle? Job done.
