Here's a jewel of a book with nuggets of hard-earned experience and advice from creative people that will inspire you.

Author Michael Toms interviews six well-known writers and one musician who all want to help you understand what they've discovered: that creativity is a birthright. That being creative is not limited to a few gifted people. That you have an inner creative voice to act on. That dissolving and reversing suggestions of doubt is possible. Toms summarizes each artist's unique message at the end of each chapter.

The first interviewee, Julia Cameron, came from an artistic family and thought she couldn't do anything her siblings were good at. Through her own "creativity expansion," she found she wasn't chained to "just writing." In adulthood she found she could also be a painter and singer. And even write a musical—without being a music student.
