Creativity's Workshop

Taming and Training Your Creativity to Write Abundantly

Ira Glass on Creativity


I’m afraid I’m still suffering from the flu so instead of struggling to put together a coherent train of thought, I’m going to share a thought brought to you by the hard work of others.

Below is an audio excerpt from an interview with Ira Glass which has been turned into this video by David Shiyang Liu.

The video is mesmerizing and the content liberating.

Watch and then pat yourself on the back. If you’re not happy with your work, it means you have taste! Actually, that doesn’t sound so uplifting when put that way.

Thank goodness Ira Glass does a better job of explaining the concept.

I'm a writer who refuses to pin myself down to one genre, hopping from science-fiction and fantasy through to literary and even the odd western now and then. Check out what I've written at or follow me on Twitter @jessbaverstock.
