Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear


Product Details
I hope everyone survived the holiday. Mine turned out to be pretty enjoyable. One of my favorite gifts was Elizabeth Gilbert's Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. I'm really loving it. Years ago I read Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way which I also loved. So I must enjoy reading about creativity.

There have been times when I think about creative projects and I wonder what the point is. Why am I spending time on this? Does it matter? Who is going to care? What would it be like if I stopped making things? For anyone who also has these questions, Elizabeth's book is just the pep talk to shake one out of his/her creative doldrums.

I like that the focus is on living a creative life. And that doesn't have to mean quitting a day job and making full time income with one's art. She also shares that her writing is for her joy and if anyone else enjoys it that's great but she creates things for herself first. This is something I need to remind myself about from time to time.

So if you are like me and need a creative kick in the pants, check it out!

Sequel to Sarah Starting Over

Some readers have mentioned wanting to read a sequel to Sarah Starting Over. Well, I'm happy to say that I have started writing a book #2 so that readers can see what happens with Greyson and Sarah one year later. Here's a tiny sneak peak. We will see the story through Greyson and Sarah's eyes in this story:

Greyson
My size thirteen wingtips kicked a couple of oval pebbles until they were sucked into a crack in the sidewalk. Other indentations in the walkway were overgrown with green things. The near constant rain made living in Siletz Bay like taking up residence on the surface of a Chia Pet. I’d been advised to wear more comfortable footwear by the prosthetic experts. But I had an image to maintain, leg or no leg.
The Canon camera I’d inherited from my mom after her passing hung around my neck most days. Clicking pics of married men sharing their beds with their assistants had become my bread and butter.
