I’m listening to the book Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. If you haven’t read/listened to it, and you are a creative person, stop what you’re doing and seek this book out.
I’ve always seen myself as creative. I am a writer. I love putting words to paper, even in the form of a letter to a friend or family member.
I have a dream of writing a novel.
What stops me? So many things…mostly self doubt.
Do you ever wonder why so many people wrote one great novel…but nothing else? Elizabeth Gilbert said that she wished that someone had pushed F Scott Fitzgerald or Harper Lee to keep writing after they wrote their flagship novels.
Today, if you are a creative, as I am, I challenge us: put pen to paper, fingers to the keyboard, and get working.
