On Nurturing Creativity

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love talks about nurturing creativity. I can totally relate to her thoughts on being afraid to be a creative. Really insightful and interesting. What do you think of what she has to say?

I LOVE this video. When I first saw it a few months ago I actually had a few tears because it hits so close to what might be my vocation--writing/imagining/filming. The part where she says, "...because THAT'S MY JOB" is so inspiring!

The idea that people have a temporary genius rather than that they ARE a genius meshes well with Pressfield's book "The War of Art." Have you read that one?
