Experienced creative block? (We certainly have, here at NYPL’s Tumblr HQ)
Whether your block is literary, performance, audio or visual - tomorrow night, you MUST (yes, we said must) visit the Library on 42nd & 5th! Alex Cornell (and friends) will be discussing his new book Breakthrough and whether he experienced creative block during the making of it.
It’s full of practical (“Sit down, shut up, go off-line.” — J.C. Herz, p.91), unexpected (“Check into an expensive hotel.” — Claire Dederer, p.33), and freeing (“Toss the file in the trash.” — Michael Cina, p.103) words of wisdom, at the heart of which is the reassuring notion that everyone (Christoph Niemann,Debbie Millman, Khoi Vinh, Mario Hugo, Jamie Lidell) gets creative block.
