Trickyleaks : September Creativity 'Owner's Manual' Leaks
The Muse Is In: An Owner's Guide for Your Creativity
Thanks to The Girl with the Unicorn Tattoo
Troubleshooting Creative Chaos September Trickyleaks
By Jill Badonsky
Trickyleaks, the runner-up Leader in Leaking stuff, strives to get you the latest, juiciest tidbits of publications that aren’t supposed to be out there yet. However, we were having a dickens of a time leaking another excerpt of the much-anticipated Badonsky publication, The Muse Is IN: An Owner's Manual for Your Creativity, now available through Running Press.
We figured we’d have to hack into the files at Running Press but we have no idea how to do that, plus one of our members tried on his computer and now it plays only Barry Manilow music, (a definite indication that we need to outsource.) We tried contacting the girl with the dragon tattoo for help, but she keeps changing her email address, so we found the next best hacker-pro, the girl with the unicorn tattoo. Although she drives a moped, wears clip-ons, and carries a Hello Kitty purse, she was successful in scoring an excerpt from the much-coveted Troubleshooting Section of The Manual.
As you may recall from the last leaks, the new book is a take-off on an owner’s manual for a car, so you can use it to keep your creativity running like a well-oiled machine. Even the most experienced creative person runs into occasional blocks like procrastination, perfectionism, overwhelm, terror, and distractibility, so a Troubleshooting Section is vital to continue a love affair with creating. The girl with the unicorn tattoo obtained part of the solution page for Creative Chaos. There was some random stuff we think is from some of her own personal hackings, so just ignore those at the end
What You’re Thinking:
Here are four of the ten solutions offered in the upcoming book:
1. Ask yourself:
2. Take a Break… Step away from the project. PUT THE PROJECT DOWN and no one gets hurt.
3. Lower expectations
4. Be Determined
“Wear the delicious blend of pineapple, pink honeysuckle, tantalizing gardenia, fresh coconut, and warm vanilla wherever you go with this adorably stylish ring, shimmering with gold trim and sparkling with a fancy diamond bow.” — Hello Kitty
