The Everyday Creativity Bundle
Start Ugly + The Problem with Muses
New from David duChemin for 2020, Start Ugly and The Problem with Muses together will give you the insights, wisdom, practical strategies, and encouragement you need to move forward in your everyday creativity.
Start Ugly is about the problem of starting, and overcoming the obstacles that make starting so hard and is a firm but gentle nudge away from the distractions and the overwhelming pressures of creating anything, and towards a more focused, and (yes, I'll say it) authentic way of making things.
The Problem with Muses is a compilation of essays from David's new podcast, A Beautiful Anarchy (not to be mistaken for the book of the same name), put in print for those who would rather read David's words than listen to the weekly episodes, and for those who already love the weekly wisdom and encouragement but want a printed copy to go back to.
The creative life is not always easy. It brings out our best but struggles with the worst, and if you find you're more often mud-wrestling the muse than being inspired by her (this is the problem with muses) and that the creative life is sometimes a fight, you're not alone. This book aims to give you courage and equip you for the fight.
Together Start Ugly and The Problem with Muses make a formidable pairing, and are available together for $30, saving you 25%.
The editions offered together here are PDF only and will be delivered digitally. Paperbacks and Kindle versions are available from Amazon here.
