In her second book – “The Creative Habit: Learn It & Use It For Life” – she takes the lessons she has learned from her 35+ year dance career & shares her routines, problem-solving techniques & creativity exercises.  When she is at a creative dead end, she has a long list of exercises to help get her out of the rut.

In her mind, self-sustained creativity is linked to routine, organization, & self knowledge – something that all types can identify with.  No matter what creative pathway you would like to harness, there is always an entrance to get there.

Getting into a “hoop rut” isn’t uncommon & while everyone tackles it differently, this book might give some new insight to your own process of getting back into the swing of things.
