On a relaxing Sunday, we would like to present Austin Kleon.
This is not a typical “LoveBook” but it is a great insight and support to follow your idea and start showing your work.
Following your dream is also true Love! Today we look at
Show Your Work!
A New York Times bestselling guide to getting discovered.
A book for people who hate the very idea of self-promotion, Show Your Work! is the follow-up to bestselling guide to creativity, Steal Like An Artist. If Steal was a book about stealing influence from others, Show is about influencing others by letting them steal from you.
In ten tight chapters, Austin lays out ways to think about your work as a never-ending process, how to build an audience by sharing that process, and how to deal with the ups and downs of putting yourself and your work out in the world:
- You don’t have to be a genius.
- Think process, not a product.
- Share something small every day.
- Open up your cabinet of curiosities.
- Tell good stories.
- Teach what you know.
- Don’t turn into human spam.
- Learn to take a punch.
- Sell out.
- Stick around.
This book is not just for “creatives”! It’s time to stop worrying and start sharing.
Austin has been a great support for LoveStory to start thinking how it might be and start to write our story!
Stay tuned and follow #LoveStory!
