How To Be Creative – The War of Art & Turning Pro

How to be creative? This is a question that surprisingly has a simple answer. DO THE WORK! In this episode, I’ll be going over a remarkable book I’ve read that has truly changed the way I think about life, the creative process and making films. The book is The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles by Steven Pressfield.

If you have writer’s block, can’t break through the fear or just want some tips on how to be creative this is the episode you need to hear. I’m also running the FIRST EVER Indie Film Hustle Contest. Steve Pressfield sent me a bounty of books to give away to the tribe. All you have to do to enter is “mail me”, not email, but actually mail me a letter or video telling me your break through story, when you decided to do the work and stopped being afraid of following that dream

Winner’s story will be read on an episode of the IFH Podcast. You can send letters or videos to:
