How to Live YOUR most Creative Life

how to live your most creative life

I found this inspirational video interview with Elizabeth Gilbert. You may know her as the author of Eat Pray Love. She has a new book out called Big Magic which should be required reading for all creatives.

I did enjoy Eat Pray Love but I thought the best part about it was the title. However, with her new book, I would say the weakest part of this book is the title.

The entire book is filled with beautiful quoatables… such as this one:

Art is a crushing chore and a wonderful privilege. The work wants to be made, and it wants to be made through you. (tweet this)

Right now, I am in the process of reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert for the second time. I actually purchased both the audible version AND the hard copy version. I also went ahead and bought copies for all of my besties. Yes, the book is THAT good. Take a short cut and watch this interview to see what I mean.

So, are you ready to grab inspiration by the tail and reign it in?

Sometimes, we need a little help getting those creative juices flowing which is why I am tickled to announce that I have teamed up with some amazing artsy souls to help you jump start your creativity.
