On Nurturing Creativity, Elizabeth Gilbert

Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of Eat, Pray, Love, although I have not read this book nor seen the recently released blockbuster based on it.

I watched this TED lecture a year or so ago, and I think of it often in regards to creating a studio practice. I refer to it a lot when I’m tell people about “going to work” so I just thought I’d post it.

    Elizabeth Gilbert makes perfect sense. You can’t force the inspiration. You just need to let it happen- and as she suggests, show up to work everyday so you’ll be ready to receive it when it comes.
