About the Post

Author Information

Creativity coach, writing and creative process instructor, speaker, author of Around the Writer's Block: Using Brain Science to Write the Way You Want (Penguin/Tarcher 2012) and Dancing in the Dragon's Den (Red Wheel Weiser), Teaching Artist at the Loft Literary Center.


Lenvi Yilmaz, creator of Tales of Mere Existence

Since the heart of writer’s block is “Don’t Do It!”, the solution must be “Do!”

Thanks to Susan S. for sending me a link to “My Favorite Artistic Advice,” a YouTube animation based on a letter by the artist Sol LeWitt, written to the artist Eva Hesse, with slight alterations (and animation) by Levni Yilmaz.

The animation is in the same vein as my last post on the importance of putting your work at the center and just doing something. Lenvi says what he says so well, I’ll just encourage you to check it out and make this one of my shortest blog posts ever. Enjoy!
