A commonplace book is a compilation of information or inspiration - anything that one would like to remember or save to reference later. They differ from diaries or journals, in that it usually organized by topic instead of date, and culls information from many sources instead of being autobiographical.
For this episode, I wanted to create a "commonplace audiobook" about creative block. I have compiled some information about the creative process in general, a few famous examples of creative blocks, advice on rekindling inspiration, music and audio clips that might help to encourage some artistic inspiration.
This episode isn’t directly about books, but rather about the creative process itself that can be applied to all creative work, not just book artists. So this would probably be a great starting point for you to share this podcast with your friends (hint hint)
