Almost every morning I put on my running clothes and get myself outside as quickly as possible. Reading Twyla Tharp’s The Creative Habit Learn It and Use It for Life, I can identify this as part of my of my daily preferred ritual. Tharp states: In the end, there is no one ideal condition for creativity. What works for one person is useless for another. The only criterion is this: Make it easy on yourself. Find a working environment wher ethe prospect of wrestling with your muse doesn’t scare you, doesn’t shut you down. It should make you want to be there, and once you find it, stick with it. To get the creative habit, you need a working environment that’s habit-forming.
