Overcoming Obstacles to Creativity

I had a wonderful conversation over the radio with Leigh Anne Kranz, host of the Bread and Roses show on KBOO. We talked about “what happens to us” after being so full of creative ideas as children, and suddenly becoming stodgy, blocked adults with no creative whims or activities. We also talked about the many challenges faced by women in particular when it comes to making time for writing, painting, or other creative outlets.

Oh, I could spend hours and weeks and months on this topic. I already did! The result is that book, of course.

Here’s the interview, which turned out to be fun and inspiring. (Note: First you’ll get a few seconds on politics and Iran as the first radio show finishes up.)
