Editorial Reviews


“For the last twenty years, Martha Alderson has created invaluable, popular tools to help writers understand the essential components of plot development and storytelling. Now, in Boundless Creativity, she brilliantly applies the principles illuminated in her breakthrough book, The Plot Whisperer, to the creative process. In this clear, inspiring workbook, Alderson lays out the spiritual voyage to higher creativity—illuminating a clear path to inspire and guide anyone with even the hint of a creative dream. If you want to successfully navigate the highs and lows of living a creative life, you’ll want this book as an essential companion.”
Laura Davis, coauthor of The Courage to Heal, author of I Thought We’d Never Speak Again and Wholehearted, and founder of The Writer’s Journey workshops

“Martha Alderson’s new book is an indispensable creative coach whispering, ‘Keep going,’ on every page.”
Holly Lynn Payne, novelist, screenwriter, and founder of Booxby

“Open-minded individuals looking for a road map to realize their creative potential will find this and more within the pages of Boundless Creativity. Prepare for a deep dive within to answer questions about personal fears, misbeliefs, and the origins of self-doubt that may be holding you back, and then learn how to let go of it to live your best creative life.”
Angela Ackerman, coauthor of The Emotion Thesaurus

“A brilliant, thought-provoking resource that serves not only as an inspiration for creative projects, but also as a meditation for writers, filmmakers, and artists ready to dive deep, overcome challenges, and produce their best work. The Plot Whisperer has done it again!”
Hallee Adelman, PhD, author of Way Past Mad, and producer/director of Our American Family

“In Boundless Creativity, Martha Alderson offers an inspiring, much-needed pattern for realizing our creative goals. By aligning our planning with the steps of the Universal Story, she guides us through the pitfalls and triumphs we artists experience as we travel down to the dark caverns and up to the light pinnacles of our creative dreams. Not only does the author share her own revelations, she coaches us through the fears and triumphs we all face while planning and executing a work of art. A workbook to prize, useful for creatives and workshop leaders, as we aim toward personal and professional fulfillment.”
Gini Grossenbacher, MEd, award-winning author of Madam of My Heart and Madam in Silk; editor; speaker; JGKS Press publisher; and director of Elk Grove Writers and Artists, an AWA affiliate

Boundless Creativity demystifies and normalizes the highs and lows of the creative lifecycle. Through a transformational program that Alderson compares to alchemy—‘A ritual of subjecting base metals (the imperfect individual) to scorching fire (challenges and change), burning off the dross (burdens and flaws) and transforming into gold (the fully realized individual)’—she guides us to identify and defang the demons that suck us into that familiar tar pit of self-doubt and creative paralysis. No matter your medium—driftwood, paints, musical notes, flour/flowers, words—Boundless Creativity will lead you back to your belief in the miraculous. Back to your belief in yourself.”
Elaine Taylor, founder of the nonprofit, The Grief Relief Project, for people poleaxed by loss; and author of Karma Deception and a Pair of Red Ferraris

5.0 out of 5 stars Way More Than a Workbook
By Betsy Graziani Fasbinder on June 10, 2020
I'm a thrice (so far) published author, so you'd think that I'd be past my inner critic by now. But no. Still those voices of doubt, criticism, and accusation surface. They cause me to delay my projects, talk myself out of them, and even when I complete them, publish them, win awards and high praise from people I respect...I STILL doubt. I override my inner critical voices to get the work done, but somehow they still live in me. And...they're costly to my spirit.

Martha Alderson's Boundless Creativity is not just a cute workbook with clever prompts and cheerleading. This is an invitation to go deeper, to explore the spiritual/emotional/psychological sources of what keeps us from living our most fulfilling creative lives. I'm using the thoughtful, insightful explorations that Alderson invites in these pages to not only override my inner doubts but to vanquish them. Hers is a wise and gentle voice in these pages, but it's a voice with BIG impact because she helps us to grapple with any forces that keep us from living as our best selves.
