If you are suffering for your creativity. If you are facing barriers and obstacles to your creativity. If you feel you have to be drunk or do drugs to be creative. If you think you need a Masters of Fine Arts to be creative. If you would be creative if only you had ideas or better ideas. If you would be creative if only you could guarantee that someone would buy your output. If you would be creative if only you could guarantee the reaction to your creativity. If you would be creative if only there were no critics. If. If. If. You might enjoy and benefit from Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert. This is both a personal and practical book. All I can say is it feels in sync with my thoughts on how to do the work I love and want to do. Whether you write, paint, dance, cook, sing, play an instrument, or something other… Or if you aspire to any of that, this book can help you get on with what you want to do, and feel good about doing it. A great read for any creative soul or aspiring creative soul.
