What makes someone creative? How does someone face the empty page, the empty stage and making something where nothing existed before? Not just a dilemma for the artist, it is something everyone faces everyday. What will I cook that isn't boring? How can I make that memo persuasive? What sales pitch will increase the order, get me the job, lock in that bonus? These too, are creative acts, and they all share a common need: proper preparation. For Twyla Tharp, creativity is no mystery; it's the product of hard work and preparation, of knowing one's aims and one's subject, of learning from approaches taken in the past. It's a process undertaken every day. It's a habit. The Creative Habit is not merely a look inside the mind of a remarkable woman with remarkable skills, but a programmatic, inspiring, encouraging guide to help each of us achieve our fullest creative potential.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Creative Habit emphasizes the work habits that lead to success.

-- C. Carr, O: The Oprah Magazine


[An] exuberant, philosophically ambitious self-help book for the creatively challenged.

-- The New York Times Book Review


[A]s accessible, smart and eye-opening as her dance.

-- Linda Winer, Newsday


An entertaining 'how to' guide, The Creative Habit isn't about getting the lightning bolt of inspiration, but rather the artistic necessity of old-fashioned virtues such as discipline, preparation and routine.

-- Cathleen McGuigan, Newsweek


Though its context is a choreographer's world, its principles are universally applicable and sound....It could change your life.

-- Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice


Twyla Tharp's amazingly plain-spoken treatise...is a frank, honest, and tough-love testament essentially arguing that art and creativity are matters of hard, old-fashioned work.

-- Sid Smith, The Chicago Tribune
