Infographic: Are You a Creative Person?

Here are the 9 rules for a creative person (or at least one person’s vision of such rules):

1. Do more than what you’re told to do. – Actually this applies to anyone creating, selling, marketing, or even doing grunge work.

2. Try new things. – Always good advice, again for anyone.

3. Teach others about what you know. – That’s what writers do naturally.

4. Make work into play. – That’s why I’m the Book Marketing Ambassador of Fun!

5. Take breaks. – Or make breaks :)).

6. Work when others are resting. – Creative people tend to put in a lot more work than others.

7. Always be creating. – And always keep having fun.

8. Make your own inspiration. – Your creative impulse must come from within you, but you must also use what happens outside you to inform and inspire you.

9. Love what you do, or leave. – My idea: Love what you do, or find a way to love what you do.
