Elizabeth Gilbert on Writing, Genius, and Creativity



"It's better if we encourage our great creative minds to live."


Whenever I'm really down about my writing, I watch this video. It's such a refreshing way to think of the creative process. It's a bit long, since it was a TED talk, but if you haven't seen it already and you write, especially regularly, this is a must see. I wish that academia would embrace this concept.

Thank you so much for sharing this! I've been in need of a 'lift' during the 'submit to literary agent' phase of my writing.

If agents, editors and publishers in general are visited by these 'muses,' (however briefly) how different do you suppose the world of publishing would be if they allowed themselves to segregate a bit of attention to their whisperings?
