Sunday Sentence.

Do you have the courage to bring forth this work? The treasures that are hidden inside you are hoping you will say yes.”

Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

So, I’ve had this book on my Kindle for literally AGES and finally started reading it last week (having already listened to the podcasts, yes, that is out of order).  The book is resonating with me (not quite as loudly as I thought it would) and I do have to take a few moments to appreciate some of the sentiments.

I’ve never had a problem being creative, so I don’t need any support in that category, but the approach to accepting my creativity (whether or not it makes me a bestselling author, blogger, screenwriter, etc.) is the difficult part.

Full review on the book at some point in the near future.  🙂

  1. I feel the same way about it. I will keep on writing no matter what, but letting go of my dream of my books actually being a huge success and earning me a living? I can’t wrap my mind around that.

    1. I think Liz makes it sound all a bit too easy. There is value in honoring your creativity, but I would like to see a more realistic take on the whole scenario of supporting yourself through your art/creativity.
