More than 40 million people work in creative careers. Even more people passionately pursue inventive and artistic projects in their leisure time. Still more long to discover artistic outlets for their creative energy. All of these people will be not just inspired but energized by Mary Beth Maziarz’s lively new book, Kick-Ass Creativity: An Energy Makeover for Artists, Explorers, and Creative Professionals (Hampton Roads, May 2010).
Written with contagious spunk and exuberance, this book presents numerous playful ways to “release one’s inner artist.” For Maziarz, getting the creative juices flowing is a moral imperative. That’s because she believes healthy, happy people create healthy, happy families and societies. And she knows how to show anyone who craves a more creative, inspired life how to satisfy that craving.
Here’s what’s in store: an examination of energy and what it has to do with art; how to connect with your deepest motivations, desires, and feelings; concrete tips about time management; how to develop a support group; and how to get rid of those flimsy excuses that block creative output
Maziarz’s insights will be useful to anyone whose work or leisure comprises artistic pursuits. Painters, photographers, dancers, writers, actors, musicians, graphic designers, advertising executives, innovative marketers, and architects will all find it useful. Kick-Ass Creativity is equally inspiring to those who like to create scrapbooks or their own greeting cards, assemble incredible meals, or solve creative problems around the household. These all count – as do countless other enterprises – as examples of artistry.
To help readers enjoy their creativity and to celebrate living itself as a creative act, Maziarz draws upon spiritual laws, psychology, life coaching, indigenous cultures, and the traditions of artists who have come before.
