The Creative Mind with Author, Bennett Litwin

Author, Bennett Litwin, shares his insights from his book called Brilliance: Understanding the Creative Mind, which is co-authored and illustrated by J. Schuh. In this talk, Bennett will talk about how creative minds work, strategies for overcoming blocks, and pitfalls of being a creative. In some cases, the greatest strength of being a creative is also a great weakness.

About Bennett Litwin

Bennett loves to write--fiction, non-fiction, TV shows, books, shorts, and more. He spends his time working with different types of creative people, so it is only natural that he would write a book called The Creative Mind.

In this book, Bennett Litwin (with co-author J. Schuh) explores many aspects of the creative mind. How do creatives get inspired? How do creative overcome their tendency to obsess over every small detail? Perfectionism, procrastination, pixel perfect, and playing politics are covered in this book.

If you are a creative or work with them, you will want to attend this insightful and fun talk by the ever witty (and always smiling)....Bennet Litwin.

    What a great presentation! Lot's of fun, important thoughts, and t-rex jokes (you had to have been there). Now read the book and join us for the book club discussion on June 14.

    It was awesome! Made me think of J. Schuh's "Paralysis by Analysis: speech/talk he has given to us (his students) many times. And a few others.
    I have to finish the book, so I can work better with my own Brilliant Mini-Me and of course, myself.

    I enjoyed Bennett's relaxed delivery and the medium as message presentation. Inspired me to dig a little deeper, and start finishing in spite of fear.

    Sadly, I have to miss out on the fun too. Really long day and no babysitter. :(

    My yard guy just arrived. I doubt he'll finish in time for me to get there from the downtown area. I'll give my spot to someone on the wait list.

    I am a bit sick so I won't be there to enjoy all that is UX tonight =( ... Please post any links to videos or other.

    Sorry also, last minute change of family plans has me unavailable to attend. Disappointed, because after meeting Bennett and Adam at last week's BOSS event, I was really looking forward to this.

    Sadly, turns out I can't make it this evening. In a classic example of "user error," I managed to slice my thumb with a kitchen knife a few hours ago. Soooo, instead of having fun with all of you, I'll be reading my copy while waiting on a call from Doc in the Box. :-D On the other hand, we are sold out and someone new can get my space -- so that's a good thing.

      Ouch! I feel your pain from here. And I had to change my RSVP to no also, but don't have as valid an excuse. Just not up to that drive (from Fort Worth) tonight...

    "Birth of a bestseller" is the name of this talk. Yes, I'm an optimistic person. How this pregnancy took four years of incubation and labor... and our baby now walks. "Process", this talk is about the process of creating BRILLIANCE. How our process relates to creating in any medium and with any client or partner.
