About Of Tears and Blood

Sacrifice. Endurance. Grit. Perseverance. Blood. Sweat. And tears.

This is what it means to relentlessly pursue one’s craft. This is what it means to be fiercely creative.

My name is Nicholas Ryan Howard. I’m an author. A philosopher. A creator. I’ve led, mentored, and guided a vast number of individuals on the topic of creativity and now, for the first time, ever, I will be sharing my experiences with you.

In my travels to all corners of the globe, I’ll be having intimate conversations with prolific creators about topics which are rarely discussed. Pain. Rejection. The detriments of fame. Isolation. The not-so-glamorous side of the creative process. In other words, the perspiration that comes from inspiration.

I’ll also be utilizing my professional experience as a facilitator of psychology to assist others who are stuck creatively, those who feel trapped and can’t seem to break through into the realms that they dream of. You’ll have an invitation to listen in on these sessions and experience firsthand the profound shifts, major breakthroughs, and powerful revelations that occur therein.

Creativity requires tapping into an infinite range of human emotions. It means existing in the light, as well as in the dark. Join me as we go deep, embrace our vulnerability, and explore the lowest of the lows—but also the highest of the highs. For with the tears of sadness also come the tears of joy. And with the blood of pain, also flows the blood of passion.

This is “Of Tears and Blood,” where we explore the raw truths of the creative process. I'm Nicholas Ryan Howard.
