Inside the Book
Title: THE FIRE INSIDE: A COMPANION FOR THE CREATIVE LIFE Author: Lucy Adkins & Becky Breed Publisher: WriteLife Publishing Pages: 290 Genre: Creativity / Self-Help
The underlying principle of The Fire Inside is that we all have within us vast untapped reservoirs of creativity, and when we recognize and begin to connect with that potential, our lives will open in ways we cannot begin to imagine. Many books have been written about the art and craft of individual disciplines of creativity. Yet few are so inclusive, so welcoming as this book, offering insight not only for furthering ones abilities in the traditional arts, but also in our day to day creativity, which so enriches our lives.
Based on the authors’ combined fifty-five years of teaching, working with writing groups and providing workshops on writing and creativity, The Fire Inside is written in a spirit of warmth and generosity. It invites the reader to:
Say yes to creativity and the nurturing it provides
Choose to live a bigger life
Uncover inner sources of inspiration and discover how “the magic” happens
Become a part of the creative community
Let go of forces that try to limit you
Develop skills for what it takes to live more creatively
Locate the “sweet spot” needed to build your life as an artist and creative being
Wherever one may be in his or her creative life—just tiptoeing in or fully immersed in the life of the imagination, The Fire Inside will be a companion in that life, a source of encouragement and inspiration. The manuscript is composed short essays designed to provide a daily dose of support and motivation. It includes anecdotes, inspirational quotations and end of chapter meditations and exercises which ask Why not me? What gets in my way of being creative? In what unknown ways am I waiting to blossom.
More and more, we hunger for meaning and for opportunities of self-expression. The Fire Inside, in its bite-sized essays which can be read in five or ten minute increments, speaks to that hunger, and provides a source of the creative nourishment we all need.
