Steal like someone that shows their work

I just read Austin Kleon’s excellent Steal Like an Artist and Show Your Work in a single sitting. It wasn’t quite a single sitting, I had to get up a couple times, grab some more water, get distracted thinking about work related things, but you get the point. Though both books we’re a pretty quick read, I think I’ll be digesting their contents for quite some time and most likely reread them again shortly. I’d highly recommend reading each one, even if you’re not necessarily an artist or need to be discovered, the suggestions apply to anyone. You can and should foster your creativity, while finding the voice to craft the story about yourself.
