". . . a sure way to break open a person’s creative intellect . . ."
Starting something isn’t easy. There is usually a lot of thinking involved and questions to answer. It is common to hear someone say, “Once I get started…” or “Where do I start?” With his book, The Art of Getting Started, Lee Crutchley offers tips, encouragement and pages full of mind clearing activities for the cluttered head.
Crutchley’s book is full of pages to write positive words, draw arrows, pictures, doodles and random lines. The pause pages direct the reader to take a break or go outside for a walk. The panic pages order the reader to complete an activity. Getting started includes taking risks and setting goals, Crutchley offers opportunity for both.
Crutchley’s book is an amusing way to tackle a blank page. From drawing blobs to eating cookies, Crutchley’s exercises provide a sure way to break open a person’s creative intellect while conquering barriers that prevent a beginning from starting.
