Okay so it is a couple of hours since I first posted this and having downloaded the book and started reading Wired to Create, I think every creative should read it or anybody who cares about a creative should read it to understand that person better. I have not finished it but loving it. More self reassurance!!
When I went to New York last year somebody said to me that there is no such thing as the lone artist anymore. That all creatives work in collaboration. I must say that I wondered at that point why the hell should I keep doing this study. I wish this book was there 12 months ago. I feel after reading this book that I am a person that enjoys solitude and walking and water and daydreaming and avoiding too much social interaction (especially of the digital variety). I have been grieving. I don't need a psychologist. I might just be abnormally normal like everybody else who decides creativity is their path whatever form this takes. This book has lifted my spirits like you would not believe. That and plenty of prayer.
