Today I am joining the blog tour for The Art of Creativity by Susie Pearl. My thanks to Susie and Orion Spring for providing me with a copy of this book, and to Anne Cater at Random Things Tours for inviting me to be a part of the blog tour.

REVIEW:

It’s time for my first review of 2021, and it is for a fantastic little book, filled with exercises to help you tap in to your creative side.

Susie Pearl’s wealth of practical experience makes her a true expert on unlocking your creativity, and the inclusion of anecdotes and experiences throughout the book add a real personal touch. Yes, she knows what she is talking about and understands the science behind the theory, but at no time does the writing feeling like a lecture, because you know that Susie has been through the same process and fears that you are going through yourself. This really help you to realise that you are not alone in thinking and feeling how you do.

As a crafter, I know that being creative is a real mood-booster and yet I still question my creative abilities, especially when it comes to writing, and so I subconsciously talk myself out of trying things in case I fail. I am a perfectionist and can be my own worst enemy a lot of the time. I am hopeful that, with practice, the habits detailed within this book will help me break through the self-imposed barriers and help me achieve my dreams.
