Another poetry blog I was reading Monday alerted me to this New York Times Bestseller: Steal Like an Artist, 10 things Nobody Told You About Being Creative by Austin Kleon.
There's a zillion books out there on creativity but Kleon's take is brill: organize it with a simple list structure combined with the revelation of some secret, previously withheld knowledge and add overt permission to pilfer slapped like a bow on top.
Who can resist?
All the great ones steal. Just ask Meryl Streep and Michael Caine.
