Wonderful, inspiring and something you will recognise yourself within. I saw it on ermiliablog today and just had to share it too.
Write on today, go on, do your job!


Anne (visit her blog if you haven’t already! She’s a brilliant writer) sent me this video the other day. I love TedTalks, many of you may know as this isn’t my first TedTalk video I’ve shared.

I wanted to share this one with you all because Elizabeth Gilbert (the author of Eat, Love, Pray) talks about creativity. Without spoiling her talk, she discusses perspectives on where ‘creativity’ originates: from within or as an external source. The reputation writers, actors, and other creative professions have created, has been one where mental instability is often a common theme. Since creativity requires so much emotional involvement, this may be part of the explanation.

      • That’s a hell of a vacation! 😀 It’s a good thing you have some creativity exercises to bring that genius back into shape. 😉

      • Laughing – yep, it has been great to join in all the writing challenges, I do also have a full writing schedule and a part-time job! It is about time I started writing out some of the ideas, they didn’t flow through me and out to someone else, I have been a heavy vessel for years! Losing weight one word at a time. 🙂

      • Hah! What a creative expression ‘losing weight one word at a time’. Let’s hope we are forever heavy with words, so may we write for a long time to come. 🙂

        Best of luck with your busy schedule. 😀

      • *Copyrights her creative expression* 😉
        Thanks Emilia – I best change laptops & get on with the word count, I have missed 2 days of schedule as I underestimated how tired I would be post travel!
